The new school librarian

The NYTimes has a story of a BMW-driving librarian who is having great success at a public school library in Brooklyn. A good promotional piece for librarianship, for sure. As the article notes, however, it may not be representative of job opportunities at public schools across the US, never mind here in Canada.

In New York City, Ms. Rosalia is a relative rarity. Only about one-third of the city’s public schools have certified librarians, and elementary schools are not required to have them at all.
