Regulations Regarding Paraprofessionals Teaching

I wanted to see if there are other schools out there who use a paraprofessional or teachers aide as their schools librarian? I am employed as a paraprofessional at a kindergarten and am not a certified teacher. I have previous education experience as a para, but no experience with library. I am solely responsible for the kindergarten library including deciding what is taught. When I started nothing was given to me expect for a few coloring pages. My questions are: is this a normal practice and are their laws regarding paraprofessionals teaching classes alone?

Districts around me have staffed their libraries with paras for years now. There was an actual certified librarian in my very first school, almost 10 years ago. The year I left the school, she was transferring to a different position because they were getting rid of certified librarians. I've never heard of a school in my area having a certified librarian since.

We used to use paras for librarians, but teachers had to stay in the library with the classes. No teaching was done. They did a story time, then students picked out new books.
