  23. 23. ! November 18, 2007 in Opinion Fight for librarians on again. Last week, Lisa Layera Brunkan watched the dawn rise in the same brown yoga pants she’d been wearing for two days straight. Night after night, she worked the mom’s “swing shift of advocacy” with her friend Susan McBurney, as they prepared to influence members of a state education task force in Olympia tomorrow about the importance of employing a full-time, certified teacher librarian in every school in the state. Brunkan and McBurney were two of the ringleaders of the group of young South Hill powerhouse moms I wrote about last summer who campaigned against cutting school library positions from the Spokane Schools annual budget. Undaunted by the odds against them, these well-educated women relied on their previous professional experience – as a headhunter, a Ph.D. linguist and a CPA among others – to drum up at least 900 signatures on a petition and make impassioned arguments in front of the school board. It was in August, at a computer in a campground in Canada during her family’s summer vacation, that Brunkan learned the heartbreaking truth. A fellow library advocate wrote Brunkan an e-mail with these searing words: “We lost.” The school board voted to reduce 10 library positions to part time for this year. For a month or so, Brunkan decided to lay low. But in September, she was walking her children home from school when a car pulled
  24. 24. ! Key to literacy, librarians now "highly endangered" By Lynn Thompson Times Snohomish County Bureau Wednesday, September 12, 2007 When Monroe High School librarian Lorraine Monprode took her first job, she was checking out filmstrips and cassette tape players. She knew when a class report on World War I was due because a clutch of students fought over the same volume of the encyclopedia. Flash forward about 25 years. Monprode guides students researching World War I bunkers to online resources that include video tours of actual bunkers, audio recollections of soldiers who fought in the war, and hyperlinks to other electronic sources, all at the same time a classmate on another library computer searches the same materials. In the age of information overload, librarians say their skills at finding authoritative and accurate sources and helping students think critically about what they read are more important than ever. But some districts around the state, including Darrington and Granite Falls, have cut librarian positions to balance their budgets. "The reality is that some districts and principals try to get test scores up by spending more time on test-taking and less time on open-ended projects, what we call discovery learning," said Marianne Hunter, president of the Washington Library Media Association and a high-school librarian in Lacey, Thurston County. An American Library Association task force last year called school librarians "highly endangered." The task force said laying all accountability for school success on reading and math scores denies the instructional value of libraries and the teaching role of librarians.
  25. 25. ! Grass-roots effort begins to save school libraries By Lynn Thompson Times Snohomish County Bureau November 20, 2007 Supporters of school librarians and library programs have launched a statewide online petition drive to try to save what they believe is an endangered school position. Two parents from the Spokane School District, where budget cuts this year reduced 10 librarian positions to half-time, want librarians and library services included in the state's definition of a basic education. "We're really, really scared libraries will fall through the cracks," said Susan McBurney, who together with Lisa Layera Brunkan is organizing the petition drive. The petition can be found at So far, more than 430 people have signed. A task force meeting today in Olympia is considering revisions to the state education-funding formula. The task force hopes to make recommendations to the Legislature in September 2008. Rep. Skip Priest, R-Federal Way, said the librarian cuts are symbolic of the state education- funding crisis. The Federal Way School District cut 20 library positions in 2006 in the face of a $4 million budget shortfall. "When we were forced to eliminate librarians, it sent a clear message that the state wasn't funding basic education," said Priest, who serves on the Joint Task Force on Basic Education Finance created by the 2007 Legislature. The petition organizers note that school districts around the state have made a variety of library-program cutbacks, including replacing teacher-librarians with aides, assigning librarians to more than one school, reducing library hours and not replacing retiring librarians.
  26. 26. ! In parents' book, library cuts go too far Families in Spokane launch what has grown into a statewide effort to protect schools' guardians of the shelves. December 23, 2007|Stuart Glascock, Times Staff Writer SEATTLE — As has happened in other states, cash-strapped schools in Washington are dropping librarians to save money: This year, Federal Way cut 20 librarian positions. Spokane reduced 10 librarians to half-time. Darrington cut two librarians. A school in Marysville eliminated its half-time librarian. Libraries are open less, their programs minimized, jobs combined. In many cases, part- timers with little formal library training are replacing skilled veterans. In rural Pomeroy, a school now employs a combination custodian-librarian: She opens the library after cleaning the locker rooms. One school's parents said: Enough is enough. Convinced that children and education suffers when librarians disappear, a loose-knit band of Spokane families launched what has become a statewide campaign to bring school librarians back from the brink. The parents blasted e-mails about an online petition to everyone they knew. They posted fliers at coffee shops, bookstores and public libraries. They began an e-mail newsletter and advertised the campaign on social networking websites. They gave presentations to education professionals and camped out at school board meetings. As their expenses grew, they sold T-shirts to raise money to fund trips to the state capital in Olympia, where they've become fixtures at hearings on school finances. This month, they hand-delivered 2,500 signatures to a state government committee examining Washington's arcane school-funding system. "We did it to find out if
  27. 27. ! Librarians essential to good schools! Letters to the Editor December 29, 2007 ! HAVING READ "Parents' group tries to stop demise of the school librarian" (Page A17, Dec. 25), I can't help but ask, Where does Massachusetts stand? Truth be told, almost half of the schools in Massachusetts don't even have a librarian, let alone a fully funded library program. Our educationally elite state, which boasts Harvard, MIT, and countless other renowned institutions of higher learning, is near or at the bottom for support of our public school libraries. Think about it. Educational research and common sense tell us that a strong school library program positively impacts student achievement. It is in the school library where children learn how to access, evaluate, and synthesize information, to learn how to learn. It is there where they can catch the enthusiasm for reading they will carry with them throughout their lives and pass on to their children. At the heart of the best library programs are credentialed school librarians, and a library program should be at the heart of our children's education. Do the parents of Washington state love their children more or know something we don't about the value of library programs? It is way past due for parents, lawmakers, and a governor here in Massachusetts to show the country that we value education just as much as the fine folks of South Carolina and Arkansas.

  28. 28. Three Spokane Moms Save Their School Libraries How three women from Spokane saved their school libraries and created an advocacy model for the rest of us By Debra Lau Whelan -- School Library Journal, 9/1/2008 One of the most successful campaigns in the history of libraries actually happened by chance, over an order of tofu pad thai. In May 2007, Lisa Layera Brunkan stopped by a Thai restaurant for lunch on her way back from teaching a yoga class at a nearby Air Force base in Spokane, WA. It was there that she picked up a copy of the weekly Inlander and saw a photograph of Ginny Pounds, the school librarian at Roosevelt Elementary, where Brunkan’s daughter Isabel was a second grader. The accompanying story reported that Pounds, a 17-year teaching veteran, was about to have her hours slashed by the cash-strapped school district. The news hit Brunkan hard. As a volunteer in the media center, she saw firsthand the difference Pounds made in students’ lives. “The library is one place in the school that’s dedicated to providing the skills that are so central to the modern age,” says Brunkan. And without certified librarians heading them “our children were going to be riding an apple cart on the information highway.” Ten days later, Brunkan found herself testifying to the board of directors of the Spokane Public Schools. “I am here representing concerned citizens of Spokane who oppose any further cuts to librarians,” she told them. “We cannot afford to cut our information specialist.” But her words had no impact. From that day on, Brunkan went from a concerned citizen to a grassroots activist. “It was a cause I couldn’t ethically turn away from,” explains Brunkan. But she had to act fast. In three months, the board would decide whether or not to halve the hours of 10 elementary school librarians to offset a $10.8 million budget shortfall. While the savings amounted to a measly $350,000, a drop in the bucket compared to the district’s $293 million budget, it would be the third significant cut to Spokane’s hard-pressed media centers over the span of four years.
  29. 29. EDUCATION WEEK Campaigns Spreading to Reverse Downturn in Library Financing By Kathleen Kennedy Manzo February 13, 2008 Some school libraries in Spokane, Wash., are as likely to be dark and empty these days as they are filled with children. Like many of their counterparts in school districts around the state and the country, Spokane officials have scaled back school library services and staffing in response to budget deficits, a problem highlighted in a new survey by the American Association of School Librarians. A grassroots campaign to salvage those programs in Washington state is taking hold and spreading to other states, however. After collecting more than 5,000 signatures in an online petition, a group of mothers from the 28,000-student Spokane district made some headway in the state capital, Olympia, this month in convincing lawmakers that school libraries need new funding. “It made me sick that [the library] was being relegated to a kind of supermarket” where students just check out books, said Lisa Layera Brunkan, who founded Fund Our Future Washington with two other mothers, Susan McBurney and Denette Hill, to champion...
  30. 30. THE FUTURE OF READING In Web Age, Library Job Gets Update By MOTOKO RICH Published: February 15, 2009 It was the “aha!” moment that Stephanie Rosalia was hoping for. A group of fifth graders huddled around laptop computers in the school library overseen by Ms. Rosalia and scanned, a Web site that, unbeknownst to the children, was intentionally peppered with false facts. Ms. Rosalia, the school librarian at Public School 225, a combined elementary and middle school in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, urged caution. “Don’t answer your questions with the first piece of information that you find,” she warned. Most of the students ignored her, as she knew they would. But Nozimakon Omonullaeva, 11, noticed something odd on a page about Christopher Columbus. “It says the Indians enjoyed the cellphones and computers brought by Columbus!” Nozimakon exclaimed, pointing at the screen. “That’s wrong.” It was an essential discovery in a lesson about the reliability — or lack thereof — of information on the Internet, one of many Ms. Rosalia teaches in her role as a new kind of school librarian.
