The library is a unique space in schools and in students' lives--a place to pursue both academic and personal interests, a place to meet and work with peers, but also a place to find quiet and a space for reflection. As Jake Carson and Ruth Kneale have noted, "Through embedded librarianship, librarians move from a supporting role into partnerships with their clientele, enabling librarians to develop stronger connections and relationships with those they serve" (2011, 167). While school librarians' goals for the library are moving to embrace a broader range of programs, they need to pay attention to what the students expect from the library space and make sure that the programs and services they are providing align with what the students and teachers need and want from the library and the librarian. School libraries matter. School librarians matter. For both to have the greatest impact they need to be thought of as two entities rather than one.
