The Vital Role of School Librarians
As a child, I remember going once a week to the school library. Somehow, though I don’t remember when or how, I learned how to use a card catalogue to find books and the general organization scheme that work across most libraries but I’m sure it was my school librarians. For today’s students, many won’t have these memories as school librarians are often the first to go when there are budget issues. While might make the budget work in the short-term, there are long-term consequences that affect the quality of the education children receive.
