You'll find libraries in schools all over Oregon.  School librarians, not so much. 

The Oregon Association of School Librarians, an arm of the Oregon Library Association, reports only about 150 school librarians in the entire state.  And just when the legislature is considering increases in school funding, OASL is pushing for more librarians. 

The case includes research showing schools that add librarians boost student achievement.  Kate Weber, a school librarian in Grants Pass, is our guest.
