  • The Future is NOW!
  • School Libraries are in the News
    “When I look at books, I see an outdated technology, like scrolls before books,’’ said James Tracy, headmaster of Cushing and chief promoter of the bookless campus. “This isn’t ‘Fahrenheit 451’ [the 1953 Ray Bradbury novel in which books are banned]. We’re not discouraging students from reading. We see this as a natural way to shape emerging trends and optimize technology.’’
    Instead of a library, the academy is spending nearly $500,000 to create a “learning center,’’ though that is only one of the names in contention for the new space. In place of the stacks, they are spending $42,000 on three large flat-screen TVs that will project data from the Internet and $20,000 on special laptop-friendly study carrels. Where the reference desk was, they are building a $50,000 coffee shop that will include a $12,000 cappuccino machine.

    Wealthy School Libraries Feel the Pain
    By Rocco Staino -- School Library Journal, 3/9/2009 2:05:00 PM
    School libraries nationwide are feeling the economic crunch—even those districts in affluent neighborhoods with stellar library programs.
    Suburban school districts on the outskirts of New York City, for example, have long been immune to budget hardships, but they’re now facing staggering cuts that are bound to ravage long-established library programs.
    In Westport, CT, a wealthy community with high test schools and a high school that was named “best” in the state expects first-time cuts that’ll no doubt impact the district’s library media program. Elementary library media assistants will be cut to half time next year, and parents have volunteered to fill their roles.
    Although there are many “very competent parent volunteers in some schools, the numbers are decreasing, and attendance is inconsistent,” says Billy Terry, coordinator of information and technology literacy for Westport Public Schools.
