HI: One of my colleagues has this situation (below) developing. I
wondered if your collective wisdom and experience could come up with
some thoughts one way or the other. Have any of you kept your Media
Centers open using Para's this way? Thanks in advance for any ideas!
Here's his dilemma:

"There is discussion taking place about keeping the IMC open until 4
each day.  Having a parent or para running it for that hour. I think
this is ludicrous and sets precedence towards thinning out media
specialists.  If a para or parent can run the center then they don't
need us? Don't we have public libraries anymore?  Mine is a mile from

"If Librarians ruled the world, Reading would be a Varsity sport."
