I wrote a while back about CSLA's new California Campaign for Strong School Libraries launched by Past President Connie Williams to raise awareness about the importance of school libraries and the role they play in teaching students information literacy skills, fostering a love of reading, and building life-long readers and learners. To help support the campaign, Jackie Siminitus created a Library Store on Cafe Press. This store is truly a labor of love for Jackie, and its offerings are growing by leaps and bounds as she constantly adds new items to it. Now is a perfect time to visit for end of school gifts. The store now has a huge selection of t-shirts, cups, coasters, stationery, magnets, and more, all decorated with a large variety of wonderful library and reading related images donated by book illustrators. Here's a flyer Jackie just created to promote it:
Please do take advantage of the wonderful offerings there. And, for graduates, Jackie has even created a new image of her own, available on a whole variety of swag:
Do check it out! I just finished a shopping spree there myself, getting end-of-year gifts for my library volunteers and for my graduating student aides.
