Lifelong learning begins and is systematically developed through the school library curriculum of Arkansas elementary and secondary schools. The school library program contributes to the individual growth and development of all students while fostering both excellence and equity in education. School librarians dedicate themselves to working for quality library programs for all students.

Arkansas Declaration of Learning Program

Open to Arkansas school librarians and teachers of English language arts, fine arts, and social studies in grades 6-12, the Arkansas Declaration of Learning program allows participants to learn about historic art, objects, and resources. Using historic objects and artwork, educators will also develop a student civic engagement project that addresses an issue in the community, state, nation, or world. To learn more, visit the Arkansas Declaration of Learning Program page.
