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?
This is a hard question for me to answer to be honest. When I was in elementary school I can't imagine not having a library accessed to me from school but in Jr. High and High School both library were under construction most of the time I went there so we didn't have a library. I think as long as it is not a permanent solution to a problem and they bring them back or as long as the kids have the local libraries maybe it is not so bad. It could still be a workable situation.
