Print material is still so important!

Joanne Schenkel's curator insight, November 2, 2013 10:29 PM

Yes! My year 7 students expressed the same view last week. They prefer to interact with paper books and love the fact that I can guide them to find a book which is a "perfect fit". Many students said they would then use the recommendations from their classmates, particularly those with whom I'd encouraged to try a new author or series.

First education bill in decades acknowledges effective school library programs | ALA

The American Library Association would like to thank Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Jack Reed (D-RI) for their leadership in including strong provisions for effective school library programs in the Strengthening America’s Schools Act that was introduced on Tuesday. The bill is the first to recognize the role school library programs play in student learning since the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first enacted in 1965.

This is not new information for those of us in the library field; however, our administrators, our legislators, and our central offices should be made aware of the cost-effectiveness of a vibrant, well-stocked, and well-trained, professional school librarian to the school community.
