About Jennifer Jamison (NJ):

Today’s school librarians employ a variety of tools beyond books to educate kids. They use technology to engage students living in a tech-heavy world. They collaborate with teachers to support curriculum. They create “maker” spaces where students can work on arts and crafts projects. They maintain a flexible schedule, so kids can drop in when they wish. And they create a welcoming atmosphere that kids crave.

“This is the third place, the safe space to expand their knowledge,” Jamison says. “It’s free, it’s accessible, it’s comfortable. You can find friends here, kind of like Cheers – everybody knows your name.”
