Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, March 1, 12:07 AM
I don't think suggesting that schools use public libraries to replace school libraries is a good idea. All schools should have a school library with a qualified librarian. The idea that schools create better links with the public library is a good one. Bringing classes in to use the resources in the public library is a great idea but not at the expense of the school library. We are planning to build on our links with our public library this year.

SWEDEN How do the public and school library systems work together? | Scandinavian Library Quarterly

"Based on unwavering support by the municipalities, the Swedish public and school library systems can look back on a long history of fruitful collaboration. The libraries often share premises and cooperate to varying degrees, both with and without formal agreements. Statistics for 2010 indicate that 43 per cent of 1,214 Swedish public libraries were integrated with their counterparts in the schools."

Teacher/Librarian Collaboration – From a Teacher's Perspective

"The library is one of most the perfect places for beyond the classroom learning. It is the place where students are, or should be encouraged to explore other worlds, to develop their imagination, to think about the impossible. This process of inquiry is what makes learning a beautiful thing and this crucial step, the jewel, is something commonly missed when teachers plan a new unit of work. Sometimes we fail to go back to the basics. We replace simple words such as finding out and enjoyment with success and assessment. Often teachers can forget about the process and cast their eyes only to the outcome."
