Peter Garrett, your time is up NOW

6 09 2011

It has now been over three months since the report on the federal Inquiry into school libraries and teacher librarians has been tabled in parliament. (Listen to MP Karen Andrews from the education committee speak to the report on YouTube.) It is time to urge the government to respond.

Use, or adapt, this letter to call on your local federal member to let federal Education Minister, Peter Garrett, know it’s time.

Then use this second letter to call on your local state/territory member to declare their support for school libraries.

Both letters ask for them to sign up to a School Library Service Declaration.  Please return any signed declarations to  for posting.

It’s time for the federal and state governments to commit to quality school library services.
