The future of the library
The future of the library. from Seth Godin.
money quote: “We need librarians more than we ever did. What we don’t need are mere clerks who guard dead paper. Librarians are too important to be a dwindling voice in our culture. For the right librarian, this is the chance of a lifetime.”
How do we reframe his beliefs to support the continued existence of school library programs and certificated school librarians?
