I start this week’s article with a confession. I love elementary school libraries. A great school library serves as the figurative, and occasionally, the literal center of the school. Many of the highlights of my career have happened in school libraries, from staff celebrations to parent committee meetings; from sharing my favorite book with students to listening as they share theirs. The elementary school library, in my mind, is the family room of the school. So, with this obvious bias, allow me to explain why Morgan Elementary’s library is an essential part of our system.
