Your School Library Program

A Newsletter for Staff

Did You Know?

  • Students from schools with well-funded libraries tend to have higher reading scores (from The Impact of School Library Media Centers on Academic Achievement)
  • Students who have access to libraries and librarians achieve better on standardized tests (from Literacy, Libraries, and Learning)

Teacher-librarians and the school library program have a positive impact on your students and can support the work you do in your classroom.

How The Library Can Help

A recent survey of staff showed that some people are unaware of all that the library has to offer.

How You Can Help

  • Share your ideas for the school library program with the teacher-librarian, including resources you would like to see in the future
  • Visit your teacher-librarian early in the semester to book time with your classes
  • Join your teacher-librarian in encouraging administration for more release time for collaboration
