Monday’s Events (IV)

This week’s musing asks…

The local Catholic school board is closing its school libraries, and parents and teachers –and even the students– are in an uproar. Budget cuts demanded that the board choose something to get rid of… they choose libraries. As such, many librarians have lost their jobs. And, the board is moving the books to the classrooms, instead. They feel that it is a good solution.

What do you think? Should the schools be without an actual “library” room? Is this a good solution?

I feel very, very sad about this. The library to me, was a quiet place I could spend some quality time during lunch at school. The librarians were always so kind to me, I could make new friends, and find great new books to read. Reading is fundamental to a child’s development, so we must provide them an environment special for this activity alone.

  1. In many urban area, the local Catholic school (and I am a product of an urban Catholic school) is the safest, best alternative. And money is always a big issue. Can parents pay more, can teachers be paid less? Turn the heat off? If not, then terrible choices have to be made sometimes…sad but true.

  2. What a lovely list.

    Humm… schools definitely need a proper library. Books should be respected and seen as a real resources, and only libraries can truly get that message across!

    🙂

    Have a great week and enjoy your reading.

  3. I agree. The foundation of libraries are slowly dying out and it leaves me to wonder when that happened?

    When did something I love so much as a child just suddenly disappear?
