My first #librarian PD day was like this... [a thread]
So, we're meeting at the School of the Arts, but they don't have a library anymore, so instead of meeting in the library, we're meeting in the cafeteria. It was beautiful, but I am directionally challenged, so I got lost...as always...and was like...
We're going to hear some statistics and get hyped, but also sad, but also hyped: 250,000 in ebook check-outs, but schools can opt-out of having library services. There is grant money available, but as people retire, they're not being replaced.

The closures that @Rachael_Swindon highlights should also been seen in the context of government policy. She is completely right that this is how the Tories are reducing #socialmobility but it is also how they are reducing access to other vital services for the most vulnerable.
It has long been government policy (in common with other countries) that people should access government services online. Other countries recognise that there is a need to keep other options open to protect the most vulnerable. The UK government took a different approach.
The UK government decided to tell people who had difficulty accessing #digital services that they should go to the #library where staff would help them. They then gave no funding for the training of library staff or for their time or for the equipment needed.

Unanimous support @BOSCityCouncil for @AnnissaForBos Resolution in support of @RepDanRyan amendment #1 to H.4730 the foundation budget bill. Of course, we must continue to revisit how #BPS dedicates & allocates its dollars but the fact remains,
We need more revenue & should not be forced to choose between a #BPS #school #nurse a #librarian or #paraprofessional for a #SPED classroom, or continue to underfund #MadisonPark H.S. These are unenviable & unfair choices.
We need an alignment of #BPS vision, priorities & financial investment AND we need more revenue. TY @AnnissaForBos @RepDanRyan @marty_walsh
