School Library Month

April is School Library Month
Posted on 04/22/2020

April is School Library Month and the Rome City School District (RCSD) thanks its 7 librarians and 9 library aides for all they do to keep our students engaged.

Our librarians work with both students and teachers to facilitate access to information in a wide variety of formats, instruct students and teachers how to acquire, evaluate and use information and the technology needed in this process, and introduces children and young adults to literature and other resources to broaden their horizons.

“School librarians are teachers, instructing students in finding and using information effectively in this very confusing information age; they are managers of the library program, space, and collection, with the goal of making everyone in their school feel included and welcome, and they are purveyors of a love of reading, which results in emotional well-being and lifelong literacy, among other things. They are critical to every school’s eco-system,” said Susan LeBlanc, Coordinator of the MOBOCES SLS/CIS
