|From the Reporter|
|More than one out of every four elementary schools in San Diego Unified is slated to have nobody working in its library next year.|
|What Struck Me|
|Trying to keep libraries running without library staff is a labor minefield. Volunteers can’t shoulder the work under state law. Giving the work to other employees runs afoul of the unions.|
|What I Want to Know Next|
|Nobody is sure how or if the school libraries will operate without staff. If these budget cuts come to pass, will schools close their libraries? Or can they find other solutions?
