Canada\'s School libraries in a miserable state
Bob Cox sent along This Globe & Mail Story that quotes national librarian Roch Carrier as saying \"I was flabbergasted by the miserable state of our school libraries,\" after touring the country\'s book repositories large and small.
\"I saw beautiful ones, but I saw school libraries closed 50 per cent of the time, I saw school libraries that served 10,000 students, I saw libraries with no new books in the last 10 years. ... In Canada, it\'s happening. It doesn\'t make sense.\"
