This aspiring Trump resistance soldier had to be reminded that she wasn’t supposed to use her position to make a political statement.
The Trump resistance seems to be setting a daily record in pettiness. In this case, a librarian refused a donation from Melania Trump and then wrote an editorial about it. Accepting a donation from the First Lady of the United States is beneath the dignity of a public-school librarian? How does that jive with the widespread “progressive” belief that bakers and flower arrangers can be forced by government to affirm or participate in a same-sex wedding?
Breitbart reports, “Elementary School Librarian Rejects Melania Trump’s Book Donation.”
CBS Boston reports that Cambridgeport Elementary School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was one of a select number of schools chosen by the White House to receive ten Dr. Seuss books for National Read a Book Day.
The White House chose one school from each state to send the books.
Liz Phipps Soeiro, Cambridgeport Elementary’s school librarian, penned an editorial for the Horn Book Family Reading Blog explaining why she would not accept the first lady’s gift.
“My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science. Multiple studies show that schools with professionally staffed libraries improve student performance,” wrote Phipps Soeiro.
