First of all, I would like to sincerely thank all my teachers and fellow librarians’ for electing me as the president of the school library board. I feel grateful and honored to have this opportunity to give a speech today. I would like to quote from John Maxwell book Failing Forward. He says that:” A leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. I aspire to be a dedicated leader who is able to lead and motivate others. I’m well aware of the responsibilities that I hold, and I shall do my best to upgrade our school library so that it will be a haven of knowledge where students can study in comfort. Next, I hope that my fellow librarians will cooperate with me in my endeavors to make our school library a better place. As we all know, “Unity is strength”. I hope that we will be able to work as a team in improving school library.
Besides that, I also pope that my fellow friends will frequent our library more and make use of numerous resources there to reciprocate our school’s efforts to instill a love of learning among students. That way, our school can achieve its vision of becoming an institution of quality education. On a side note, I would like to apologize if I’m not fluent enough in English. I shall conclude my speech today and leave you all with the thought:” Together, we can make change happen! ” Thank you very much.
