Chicago Needs Elementary School Librarians

Reposted from WBEZ - Chicago
It’s no secret that when funding goes for a elementary school, one of the first affected areas is the school library. A school with a dedicated library could end up with only a shelf in a classroom. And then there are other cases, where the school supports the library and kids have an active role in reading, not to mention just more exposure to ideas, to topics, to the world.
