“Libraries aren’t just for books. They’re often spaces that transform into what you need them to be: a classroom, a cyber café, a place to find answers, a quiet spot to be alone. It’s actually kind of magical. This week, we have stories of people who roam the stacks and find unexpected things that just happen to be exactly what they required.“ – This American Life podcast – The Room of Requirement

On a near-basis, you can find news articles about school districts cutting librarians or even closing their libraries.  Some relocate the monies to other programs in the school, some just cut the budgets entirely, and others reinvest in facilities and football fields.

Yet, there is rarely an uproar among parents, simply because they are not aware of the consequences of these actions.  In many cases, even district leaders have no clue what librarians can do.
