Workshops: Teacher Librarians & School Library Programs

Roch Carrier about School Libraries - author The Hockey Sweater - a Canadian Classic

If we believe that our children are our future - and I believe that we all do – then we must do what we can to ensure that our children have access to the information resources and skilled personnel in school libraries so that our children can get off to a good start in understanding and participating in society.

It is not enough that there is a room full of resources. Children need to learn how to find information, to choose and apply information. They must have teacher-librarians who are dedicated to guiding them in developing their skills, but also to developing in them the love of lifelong learning.
