Interesting in light of U.S. Common Core adoption, which mandates more use of informational texts (up to 50% of the time in elementary school). Informational texts do not have a strong narrative line, and won't be producing the changes observed in this study.

Excellent article featuring the thoughts of a school principal as she works with her school community to build new libraries in the junior and senior schools. I love her vision, "We felt very strongly that the library is more than a facilitating process – it has cultural significance which matters. The library can inspire" and "Our approach is unashamedly about inspiring a love of learning". I think the Cabinet of Curiosities concept is a brilliant program in stimulating students' interest and encouraging inquiry.

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.

The future of libraries is strong. It is evolving to include digital media, but most patrons still prefer print! @Truce_CISD #CISDlibrarians #CastleberryISD
