Libraries are essential components in a school setting.  It is my belief that the library is the heart of the school because it is the essence of education -- ideas and information.

Please support funding for school library books and resources.  It is an investment in our future.

I trust you will use good judgement and wisdom and see the need for strong libraries in our educational system.

I am the Director of Instructional Media and Library Services for Alpine School District.  I see firsthand the difference this funding makes to students, librarians, teachers, and curriculum. 

Thanks for your kind consideration,
Luanne Olson
