Using the Internet to build up Schuylkill Valley's library

Using the Internet to build up Schuylkill Valley's library | School Library Digest | Scoop.it

Donating to the Schuylkill Valley Elementary School library is now just a few computer mouse clicks away.

 

The school has launched a fundraising effort to get some new books on its shelves, said Amber Rubendall, school librarian. The initial goal is to raise $1,000 by February.

 

"I thought, 'Why don't we give this a shot and see how it goes?' " Rubendall said of the fundraiser.

 

The school is using a free Web program called Save Our School Library, or SOS Library, in which people can go online and select books from a wish list to donate. They also can donate money directly to the library on the site.

In PA schools, movement to keep school librarians on the books

In PA schools, movement to keep school librarians on the books | School Library Digest | Scoop.it
Photo by Wikimedia Commons Things may be looking up for school libraries in the commonwealth. Researchers say school libraries across Pennsylvania are still lacking the proper resources, but staffing levels may be increasing in the next school year. In 2011, the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association did a statewide survey of 78 percent of the school districts in the commonwealth, and found many programs wanting. Subsequent studies tracked changes in staffing levels - because budget cuts made the state Department of Education unable to follow such developments alone. Mary K. Biagini, associate professor of information science at the University of Pittsburgh, assisted with the surveys. The big drop happened about three years ago with state budget cuts, when about 100 school librarian positions were eliminated.
