FAME advocates for every student in Florida to be involved in and have open access to a quality school library media program administered by a highly competent, certified library media specialist. FAME is a collaborative, responsive, dynamic network for Florida library media professionals.
Greetings to the Membership of the Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME), and to All who visit the website:
It is FAME's goal to serve as an advocate for school librarians and school libraries. It is the hope that ALLwho visit the site will sense the high value that is placed on school media personnel and the libraries in which they work, throughout the state of Florida. It is FAME'S belief that children and young adults should have access to the library throughout the entire school day. Students should know the library is the place where imagination can soar and dreams come true through the availability and use of a diverse collection of traditional and digital resources, and that the use of these media is absolutely all inclusive. Librarians accepting this philosophy of availability and all inclusiveness say, in essence, they desire to plan and execute programs that will be instrumental in boosting the academic achievement of all students.
As a unified group, let us move FAME forward as we plan for the 2013 conference using the theme: (The) SCHOOL LIBRARY: PORTAL TO IMAGINATION, DREAMS and DIVERSITY.
