The toolkit is based on the SLAV Statement on School Libraries which was prepared by the association, and ratified by the SLAV state council, in 2018. The toolkit material was initially prepared by Mary Manning, a long standing, highly experienced educator who was the Executive Officer of SLAV for many years.
Mary is currently the Editor of the SLAV journal FYI.
