Schools are the center of learning in our country and the school library is at the epicenter of the learning experience in our schools. The American Association of School Libraries comes to Charlotte for an annual conference and we’ll meet some of the leaders of a group that represents 77,000 school libraries and over 62,000 certified media specialists. We’ll learn some of the history of the school library as well as how they’ve changed over the history of our education system, how they are keeping up with technology and how they’ve weathered challenges to some of the material they carry. We’ll hear all about school libraries.
Cassandra Barnett – President, American Association of School Libraries
