I was an elementary school librarian for 33 years. My experience says that librarians can be facilitators to assist in change. I worked in a school that worked for individualization. Things have changed to a all should be the same. All second grades doing the same thing at the same time. That is a total reverse from my experience. It dumbs down to say the least.
