This is such a powerful 5 minute video on the impact of the school library on students' reading ability and their motivation and interest in reading. It also demonstrates the power of having a school principal with a teacher librarianship background. The claims made by these school community members is backed up by school-based data and the improvement in students' behaviour as readers and literary learners.

The library profession has strong evidence that students in schools with good school libraries learn more, achieve academic standards, and score higher on standardized tests than students in schools without school libraries and librarians. School librarians must seize the charge to use this body of research and master "messaging" strategies to create library advocates among school and community stakeholders and, hopefully, one or two school library champions.

A practical article by Deb Kachel providing teacher librarians with strategies to develop their capacity to present a carefully crafted argument on the importance of school libraries based on research findings of school library impact studies. I love her closing statement: "School librarians must learn, embrace, and share these research findings." Absolutely!

For a teacher: "Co-teaching reduces your workload and provides students with more individualized instruction."For an administrator: "Studies have shown that school libraries can improve student test scores."For a parent: "The library program can help your teen become career and college ready."For a school board member: "It is difficult to help students achieve the reading targets without the kind of books that students want to read. The school library supports students' reading interests."For the curriculum coordinator: "When school librarians and teachers work together, they teach information skills, content, and Common Core standards all in one lesson or unit. Students learn more in a shortened amount of time and benefit from the expertise of two educators."To the Learning Support Coordinator: "The research shows that the reading and writing scores improve for struggling students—ELL, deficient readers, the disabled—when they use school libraries and are taught by a school librarian."
