"School libraries are places for kids to explore - study after study points to the connection between strong school libraries and a capable teacher librarian having a positive impact on student achievement. There's no question that connecting youngsters with books that are going to be home runs in terms of their interests and getting them keen on reading have a big effect on achievement. We really don't have to spend so much time measuring for connections between libraries and subject areas. If there's a connection with reading, kids are going to do better in those subjects if they are able and motivated to read."
