Today I chanced upon this TED Lecture by Joyce Valenza entitled ‘The Importance of School Librarian’ and was truly inspired by this lady who despite having worked as a school librarian for 35 years still exudes so much passion, energy and enthusiasm in her role. She is indeed a true role model for those of us in the library scene. ” There has never been a better time to be a librarian” still rings loud in my ears!! A very encouraging quote indeed.
