School libraries change lives, says new report - News - TES

School libraries change lives, says new report - News - TES | Library-related | Scoop.it

Sudi Hope Stodola's insight:

Best quote from the article: Novelist James Robertson, meanwhile, said that libraries were “as essential a part of school as a classroom”. He added: “You can’t just fill an empty room with books and call it a library – you need somebody to encourage children and show them how to use it.”

That's what we do.

Doesn't matter which country you come from the findings are the same. School libraries are essential in the development of literacy capabilities for every student.
