After the Open Letter to the UK PM was published, the European and international organisations ENSIL, IASL and IFLA School Libraries and Resource Centres announced the publication of a joint document that can be used to advocate professional school libraries worldwide.
It is with great pleasure we hereby present this document. it is called "A LIBRARY FOR EVERY SCHOOL": A Proclamation.
The proclamation can be used by individuals as well as organisations. We kindly suggest to translate the document in your national or even regional language and send it to as many school leaders, administrators, politicians and decision makers as possible. Mount it on your website, post in your blog, use twitter, list serves and social networks to disseminate the document and make it work!
For your convenience we put the document to your disposal in 2 formats:
1) The official proclamation in English, signed and distributed by Stichting ENSIL and co-signed by IASL, IASL Europe and IFLA School Libraries and Resource Centres
2) A word version of the proclamation in English; for you to sign on the first page; add your (organisation's) name in the footer, and (optional) the logo in the header.
if you have any questions, how to use the proclamation, please contact us.
