School Library Media

The School library was once a quiet corner of the school where children went with their teachers to pick out a book to read during the following week. The role of the once staid library has expanded enormously!! The school library media center is a hub for technological information gathering and information processing as well as for literary enrichment. the school librarian is a critical resource person for teachers who look to the center for various types of instructional support, both in printed and in action-oriented visual formats.

You should consider becoming a School Librarian if you:
     -- enjoy helping others use new technology.
     -- like to work with a wide range of students.
     -- enjoy connecting children to literature.
     -- enjoy focusing on special projects.
     -- enjoy the challenges of an ever-changing field.
