Hello:
        My name is Cheryl Fitzpatrick and I am a teacher-librarian at an
elementary K-6 school in East Toronto, Ontario.  I have joined this
listserv as part of an assignment for Librarianship Part 3 which I am
taking online through the University of Toronto/OISE.  I am interested in
finding out any information regarding teacher librarian issues in the
Atlantic Provinces.  For example:
        Are you facing funding cuts to support materials and or staffing in
school libraries? What school initiatives are currently involving the
library and students?  What role does the Teacher Librarian have within
the school?  Do they have many other duties as well as running the
library?  Is teaching information literacy a priority?  Is the government
and public involved in supporting library issues?
        Any other topics or concerns surrounding libraries in schools, however
varied in provinces or school areas, would be interesting to hear about as
well.

Thank you.
Cheryl
