Bullying is becoming more common in schools. Students deal daily with torment and abuse from others with no escape, as bullying does not stop at school. Bullying has evolved into viral torment via cell phones, computers, social networks, and more. Bullying can include and lead to violence as students feel that adults will not be able to help or know how to stop the bullying. So how can a librarian help to curb bullying behavior? The research provided to answer this question was limited to current peer-reviewed journals and studies. The results show that bullying is a factor in schools and that many times educators are unaware and unclear on how to help. The librarian can help curb bullying behavior by providing lessons, literature, and help in showing how to prevent bullying and how to react and respond to a bullying situation.
