Lamar CISD Celebrates School Librarians’ Week

Apr 08, 2021 | Community Relations

Please join Lamar CISD in recognizing April 5-9 as School Librarians’ Week.

At its March meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution declaring April 5-9 as School Librarians’ Week. The week-long event is celebrated throughout the nation and celebrates the resourceful individuals who inspire learning and keep libraries thriving.

Librarians are valuable members of the education team in Lamar CISD schools. Campus librarians contribute to the education of all students in many ways that extend beyond their most recognizable function as the resource director for each campus.

School librarians provide information about additional instructional resources for teachers and students. Their assistance is especially important as students learn the research process as part of the learning process. School librarians are also important resource persons in curriculum development, textbook selection and reviewing instructional materials. Their knowledge of instructional technology and educational programs serves as an additional resource for students and staff.

Additionally, during the pandemic, librarians have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding resources and continuing to meet the needs of students virtually and in-person.
