10 Things to Know About Modern Librarians...

Have you read (and shared) this great post by Allegra D’Ambruoso on her blog "Trust me, I'm a Librarian."?

D'Ambruoso shares 10 things she would like to remind classroom teachers (or even the general public!) about our evolving roles and what we really offer to our school communities:
Oh, sure, the typical view of a librarian is an older woman, in a cardigan and cat-eye glasses, with a tight bun, shushing everyone who dares to make a sound. That may have been the case a long time ago, and may still be the case with some dinosaur librarians (they still exist, sorry!), but generally, librarians don’t like quiet. Quiet means that no one is collaborating. 

Thanks for sharing, Allegra!
