What Happens Without School Librarians?

By Anthony Rebora — May 03, 2011 1 min read

The Intelligencer Journal in Lancaster, Pa., reports on a young elementary school librarian who has transformed his facility into an invaluable technology resource center for teachers and students. But that still might not save his job: He is among 20 school librarians the district is planning to furlough next fall.

“It’s difficult to think how different this place is going to be next year,” says the school’s principal, who credits the library in part for a recent jump in students’ literacy scores.
