Hi everyone,


As you may have known, the following resolution was passed at last year's OGM: 


"Be it resolved that APLA respond to the Nova Scotia minister of Education on the issue of librarians, teacher-librarians and school libraries by stressing the importance of properly staffed school libraries to the complete education of our youth."


"Qu'il soit résolu qu'APLA donne réponse au ministre de l'Éducation de la Nouvelle-Écosse à propos des bibliothécaires, des bibliothécaires-enseignants et des bibliothèques scolaires en soulignant l'importance de la dotation appropriée des bibliothèques scolaires pour assurer une éducation de qualité à nos jeunes. "


Attached are my letter to Minister Muir and his response.


Note: the last line of the second last paragraph in Minister Muir's response should read: library collections.
