"Education reform must include support for school libraries"
The skills of the teacher librarians offer a range of essential tasks, including teaching information literacy, delivering captivating book talks, finding and introducing new technology and cultivating technology skills, reinforcing solid research skills, supervising and engaging students during non-instructional periods, and, of course, developing and maintaining a collection of materials to meet student needs.
We disseminate knowledge and offer the support necessary to make student learning experiences successful, and positive. For example, beyond our teaching tasks, we also deliver a careful form of book selection called bibliotherapy, a type of assistance that puts appropriate books into the hands of children and adolescents struggling to navigate the complex pressures and problems that complicate their diverse lives.
