School libraries and teacher-librarians: evidence of their contribution to student literacy and learning

School libraries have the potential to be a vibrant hub for learning, information, reading promotion, creativity, student leadership and social interaction within their school community. From an equity perspective, the school library is one of few places in a school open to all students, teachers and parents. In addition to providing a congenial learning environment and ‘safe haven’, the school library often offers a venue for extra-curricular activities, as well as school community events and meetings.

Great to see this research being done closer to home and showing again the value of school libraries as a central hub of the school.

Bibliomancienne's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:33 AM

"The differences between the book exchanges I have encountered are fascinating and illustrate my point. One locker room book exchange at a fancy country club golf course offered a wide selection of current bestsellers in mint condition. Another locker room exchange at a fitness club yielded row upon row of bodice rippers.
