School librarians work closely with classroom teachers to develop lessons and activities that align to standards and provide differentiated instruction for students. In addition to purchasing reference materials and books, school librarians often play a key role in recommending and purchasing supplemental instructional materials.
Public libraries are re-inventing themselves to provide their communities with access to technology, continuing education and entertainment. Print and ebooks, DVDs, online databases, hardware, furnishings, security services, and much more are all on a public librarian’s shopping list.
