McKenna: Volunteers good, librarian better

MARY ELLEN MCKENNA,

Daily News Tribune - September 24th

The Daily News Tribune, from Needham, Massachusetts has posted an article from a mother who writes a response to another article posted September 18th ("Check this out: Volunteers help keep elementary school libraries open in Ashland.").

While she admits that she would probably do the same thing she does recognize the importance of having school librarians.

"I applaud the commitment level of the volunteers in Ashland. I would most likely do the same thing in their shoes. I just caution all others applauding their efforts to not think this is a permanent solution. School libraries should be staffed by professional librarians; our children deserve their skills and expertise."
