CSLA K-3 Literacy Position Statement


Teacher librarians are necessary to California’s current PK-3 literacy goals and to all children’s literacy achievements. Strong school library programs are composed of vetted resources and services that support well-rounded literacy. When managed by professionally trained and certificated teacher librarians, school library programs provide physical and intellectual access to resources that equitably support students and teachers to become effective learners, thinkers, and readers.
