Save Our Library - Protest Captured on YouTube

World Wide Watch carried a video clip about a June 9th protest organized by Saddleback Valley Unified School District teacher librarians against a school district's plan to eliminate or downsize its library program. Video headline: WorldWatchNow//Cuts Hurt//Librarian Protest. There are no voice-overs or speeches, just the song "Angel" by Sarah MacLachlan.

According to an article in the Orange County Register headlined "Saddleback School Board: Shortfall May Swell $20 Million", Tuesday's school board meeting attracted hundreds of parents, teachers and about 75 students who rallied outside just before the meeting to protest the proposed reduced staffing levels at their school libraries. Here's another article by OCRegister columnist Yvette Cabrera on "Oh, Those Sexy Librarians".
