Reimagining the school librarian

In 2007, three mothers in Spokane, Wash., launched a successful advocacy effort to save school librarian positions across the state. A recent article in School Library Journal talks about the continuing work to reimagine the school librarian role by involving librarians in education decision-making.

The article also highlights WSBC member district Vancouver Public Schools, where curriculum support and technological leadership have made teacher librarians essential in the implementation of the district’s strategic plan.
