April is School Library Month

You can book it… April is all about libraries.

It’s School Library Month, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate school librarians and their programs. Today, April 4, is School Librarian Day, and April 16 is National Librarian Day.

The lifelong benefits of reading are staggering, particularly when considering the value associated with early childhood reading. A student that reads an average of 20 minutes per day – or a young child read to by an adult for 20 minutes per day – will spend 3,600 minutes per school year reading while being exposed to an astonishing 1.8 million words annually. And those same students, on average, score in the 90th percentile on standardized tests.

In Nacogdoches ISD, librarians provide a number of critical resources, programs and expertise on their campuses. In communities across Texas and the nation, libraries and librarians deliver indispensable services in our schools, particularly when considering their impact on our youngest readers.

We’re grateful for the hard work and contributions our Nacogdoches ISD librarians make daily.
