New Funding Structure Forces Oakland School Librarians to Look Elsewhere

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that changes to funding structure to school libraries has led to cuts in hours and relocations for librarians and library staff in the city's schools.

The schools' libraries have already been struggling with many operating libraries without library staff or closing libraries all together.

Some librarians in the district have begun to look elsewhere for jobs that can provide more security and consistency.

The decision puts a school district that has already been struggling in an even more precarious position as student access to libraries and librarians is being reduced across the district.
