The Crisis in School Libraries

The Crisis in School Libraries | 21st Century School Libraries are Cool! | Scoop.it

Since the early 1990’s, school libraries have continued to erode; each year more school boards must make the difficult decision to reduce proper staffing in the school library and to cut back or stop the purchasing of school library resources.
This decline is having a direct negative impact on student achievement and reading engagement. Students who are in schools without a staffed and resourced library program are not receiving the same education as students who have school libraries.


Via Karen Bonanno
Anne McLean's insight:

School libraries need more staffing and resources in the digital age.  We need to make school leaders aware of the direct negative impact of cuts to staffing and budgets.

Collections, staff and space dedicated to teens have existed in libraries for years. Now, libraries are shifting those resources to developing learning spaces where teens can create content instead of consume it. Research has shown the widespread positive impacts of afterschool programs on academic achievement and social behavior, especially in low-income communities. The need for spaces that engage teens becomes even greater during summer break, when teens have more free time, said Elyse Adler with the Nashville Public Library.
