MPs to hear school library concerns

THE national supply of professional librarians in schools is diminishing and the concern will be raised in Sydney tomorrow at the first hearing of a national inquiry into how school libraries are staffed.

Federal Education Minister Julia Gillard has directed the House of Representatives committee on education and training to report on ''role, adequacy and resourcing'' of school libraries and teacher librarians in public and private schools.
