The new librarian sheds hackneyed image
vonjobi sent along an article on Zarah Gagatiga â€” Filipino Librarian. Xavier School's grade school librarian Zarah Grace C. Gagatiga is not made of any of that old stuff. She is a hardworking scholar, a modern educator who refuses to be catalogued. "You can't afford to do that anymore," she insists, referring to the outmoded thinking that sees librarians as mere shelf-fixers, "because the library's role is to help in nation-building and to contribute to the children's education."
