In the model of the school library of my era (and I would say most of today's institutions), the librarian saw themselves as THE curator of information.

Schools can apply for funds to bring an author in for programs. Two schools will receive an all expense paid visit by a well respected children’s author or illustrator. The chosen schools will also receive a $250 stipend to assist in creating this memorable event to celebrate reading, learning, and children’s literature and $250 worth of books by the visiting author. Additionally, one runner up school will be selected and rewarded with books valued at $250.00.
The new Follett Digital Reader app will allow students to check out books to their mobile devices from the Follett SHelf, a collection of e-books that the library can build.
