Greetings Jane, 

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

We have an awesome person at district who politely nudges our concerns with the busy, overloaded IT department for us. I growl and she sweet talks them.

Regret it took me so long to respond to your friend request -- our school system changed filters and I'm now blocked from a lot of sites normally used.
