Take Action for School Libraries

April 29, 2021

State Reps. Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton), Matt Koleszar (D-Plymouth) and Amos O’Neal (D-Saginaw) introduced a package of bills that would require a library staffed by a certified media specialist in every public school in the state.

House Bill 4663, would require a school board to employ at least one certified media specialist for each school library operated by its district.

House Bill 4664, would require a school library in every Michigan public school, and also would require the library to be accessible to students and offer resources in both electronic and print form.

House Bill 4665, would require a principal or other appropriate administrator to designate an individual to supervise students in a school library when a certified media specialist is not present.

The bills now move to the House Committee on Education for consideration.
