Librarian Maura Large shows Emely Arroyo, 13, the book "Hoot" by Carl Hiaasen in the library in Eliot Middle School in Altadena. Large has been a librarian at the school for two years and could be laid off this year. District officials have proposed to eliminate seven teacher-librarian positions, and the Glendale school district has proposed to eliminate four.
