Students Need Libraries in HISD - Our Mission
Every HISD student deserves a full time certified school librarian and a fully stocked library. The mission of Students Need Libraries in HISD is to make this happen by persistently providing information to librarians and their stakeholders: students, parents, community residents as well as campus and district personnel.
Available in booklet format for printing as well as full-page format with internal bookmarks for desktop access, this 2018 project offers all stakeholders a visual guide to the multi-faceted skill set of certified school librarians. Please share widely!
