Rebecca Parker Elected to Greater Kansas City Association of School Librarians Executive Council
Garfield Elementary Library Media Specialist Rebecca Marcum Parker has been elected as second vice president of the Greater Kansas City Association of School Librarians for the upcoming school year. She is one of two Missouri school librarian representatives on the Missouri Secretary of State John R. Ashcroft’s Library Council and serves on the Missouri Association of School Librarians’ Advocacy and Diversity committees.
Ms. Parker believes students become better readers when they see themselves in books and graphic novels. Her students love checking out books that were purchased with a grant from GLSEN’s Rainbow Library. Ms. Parker’s motto? “The question may not involve the library and librarian, but the answer always can!” She has been a KCPS school librarian for 24 years.
Summer reading recommendation from Ms. Parker: This Book is Anti-Racist, by Tiffany Jewell. Ask your school librarian for help logging into your school library account, or check it out from the Kansas City Public Library. Don't forget, adults who participate in KCPL’s Summer Reading Program can earn books and cool prizes!
