The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has an advocacy tool to help school librarians generate and guide discussion with stakeholders about quality school library programs. School Library Programs Improve Student Learning is a series of advocacy brochures each designed to speak to a specific stakeholder audience within the school library community, including administrators, policymakers, parents, and teachers. Each brochure outlines goals and key questions specific and important to that audience helping school librarians lead unique conversations, set goals and expectations for the program and the stakeholder, and maximize the potential of the school library program.
The brochures are available for download or ordering from AASL.
Developed and distributed through a grant from the Bound to Stay Bound Books Foundation, this publication complements the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Programs. (Empowering Learners is available in the Wyoming State Library collection.)
