Happy new year library colleagues! And welcome to 2023! For this month's issue, we have three feature articles and an informational article by our own Leanne Ellis. First, we hear from Christina Gavin, who shares the work she does to advocate for school libraries through the UFT. Next, Jillian Rudes shares her new book coming out and some other useful information about using manga in the classroom and library, and finally, we hear from Lauren Ginsberg-DeVilbiss, who is the sustainability coordinator in her school, and how she has inspired her students to fight against climate change. Also, please check out a variety of grant opportunities for you and your students! Happy reading! - Patricia Sarles, editor.
