Does Middle States have any requirements for libraries with Certified
Teacher Librarians? With current success of Philadelphia Phillies and
Eagles, how beneficial it would be for our students to have had access to
Melvil Dewey System 796 sections containing books about baseball and
football? Fair assumption that players on these two teams likely enjoyed
and benefitted from this resource in their growing up years.
