My district

I am retired now, but taught in a very large school district with 50+ schools. There were library paras manning the libraries. They were supervised by the librarians who are in the buildings a few times a month. The library paras read to the students, help them find books at their reading levels, check books in and out, shelve books, order books with the assistance of the librarian, etc. They follow lesson plans and check with teachers to see what is being taught so what they Re reading to the stiudents is relevant. You had a job that was integral to student success in reading, which leads to success in all areas.

It is too expensive for large districts to have librarians in every school. It would be next to impossible to find over 50 school librarians.

I cannot believe that job requirements were not discussed at your interview. Also, if you did not have a copy of your contract, you could have easily requested it from Human Resources.
