National Librarian Day - 4/16/24

National Librarian Day is April 16th and the Claremont Unified School District (CUSD) is proud to honor the remarkable efforts of our librarians. These staff members extend far beyond their role as book caretakers; they guide our student's intellectual and creative journeys. Through their dedication, our librarians create learning spaces, inviting creativity, exploration, and a deep love for reading to flourish.

At the core of our libraries is the unwavering commitment of our librarians to foster a nurturing environment where every student finds joy in learning and reading. "I feel like the library is the heart of the school," says Amy Bassett, the Chaparral Elementary Library Media Assistant. This sentiment echoes across CUSD as our librarians tirelessly work to make the library a beacon of hope, inclusivity, and inspiration. From engaging book clubs during lunch to creative programs like March Madness book voting, they ensure that our libraries are lively centers where students eagerly anticipate their next literary adventure.

As we celebrate National Librarian Day, we thank these remarkable individuals for their passion and dedication. Their innovative efforts in transforming our libraries into dynamic, welcoming spaces play a crucial role in shaping the minds and hearts of our students. The CUSD community is better today because of their contributions, and we look forward to the continued impact of their work in cultivating a lifelong love for reading among our students.
