The emphasis today for school libraries is: resources (not just books) and value adding by curating the resources; collaboration with students, teachers, other teacher librarians; information literacy and ICT embedding in all KLAs.
For an idea about the modern roles of a Teacher Librarian look at the Standards of Excellence for Teacher Librarianshttp://www.asla.org.au/policy/standards.htm

To reach a generation of users who expect to seek information, learn, and communicate online, 21st century educators must retool and determine how best to accomplish this mission in new information landscapes. Teacher-librarians must build landscapes to meet their learners’ needs online.
School library websites have new potential to expand and reinterpret library service for learners. Through their websites, teacher-librarians can apply traditional skills--for instruction, collection development, collaboration, reference, and administration--in powerful new ways. They can apply these skills in highly populated, newly emerging information landscapes. They can offer 24/7 accessibility, just-in-time/just-for-me learning opportunities. As scalable strategies, school library websites allow librarians to guide unlimited numbers of students—onsite, at home, or otherwise distant. If we our to reach learners who are largely online, we must move our practice. If we plan to intervene in student research, we must find new ways to be there. Joyce Valenza
