  1. The School Library System heads should be informing their member districts of this potential requirement. There are many school districts on LI and I am sure elsewhere that have no or inadequate staffing in their libraries. For example the Levittown UFSD has 6 elementary schools and no librarians. School districts will wait until they are sued to comply with these new provisions if enacted.
