An Advocate for School Librarians

This week, as part of their series “The Future of Reading”, the NYT ran a story by Motoko Rich on a Brooklyn school librarian who, like many others around the country,  teaches her students to read critically on the Web (while also encouraging them to enjoy books). 

On the NYTBR podcast (second story), Rich talks to editor Sam Tanenhaus about the story, explaining effectively why schools need trained librarians.

We all know this, but it’s great to hear it from someone outside the profession.
