From CLA newsletter dated Friday October 16:

“The vital contribution of school libraries to the growth and education of our children across the country deserves national recognition. Join us on Monday October 26, National School Library Day, in celebrating the work of our school libraries: this day is an opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for the important role of school libraries and the school library staff on the academic achievement and growth of students in Canada.

On October 26, school staff and students will be celebrating National School Library Day by participating in  CLA’s Voices for School libraries Network‘s  Drop Everything and Read Challenge (D.E.A.R): an initiative whereby staff and students are encouraged to drop everything and read at 11:00 a.m. local time to highlight the importance of school libraries in the educational lives of students. Participants are encouraged to tweet about their participation in the challenge and let the country know what students are reading. Use the hashtag #canadadear2015. The Voices for School Libraries Network can be followed on Twitter @CdnSchoolLibrar or on Facebook (Voices for School Libraries).”

Everybody knows that effective school library programs increase student achievement. Check these links for research:
