Should We Shrink Wrap Our School Libraries?
Because of the state of the economy and Ohioâ€™s school funding, our district recently pink-slipped 61 educators. Ten of those are library staff. Some districts in similar circumstances chose to close their libraries and shrink wrap their collections. We wonâ€™t do that. What we are doing is talking with designers, leaders, and librarians with experience and vision. Weâ€™re asking lots of questions, seeking models that do not replicate the stacks of the past.
