New school initiative backs tech-ready librarians

Media specialist Samantha Edwards wants noise in her library—and she hears it.Last fall, Edwards, the librarian at Fogelsville Elementary School in Parkland School District in Pennsylvania, opened a modest self-publishing center in the library outfitted with an iMac, a printer and a machine to bind books.

She noticed how excited her students were to create their own publishing projects, and decided to expand the publishing center into a “makerspace,” a designated area for students to learn technology skills and tinker with electronics.
