MORE EFFECTIVE USE OF SCHOOL LIBRARIES.
HOFFMAN, ELIZABETH P.
A WELL-EQUIPPED AND ADEQUATELY STAFFED SCHOOL LIBRARY CAN HELP IMPROVE INSTRUCTION AND CAN BE THE CENTER OF LEARNING BY PROVIDING EXTENSIVE ENRICHMENT MATERIALS. THE SCHOOL LIBRARY IS A NECESSARY PART OF EVERY SCHOOL. THE AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION (ALA) RECOMMENDS STANDARDS BASED ON SCHOOL SIZE, AND THE KNAPP FOUNDATION SPONSORS SCHOOL LIBRARY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS THROUGH THE ALA. THESE DEVELOPMENTS INDICATE THE GROWING INTEREST IN NATIONWIDE SCHOOL LIBRARY PROJECTS. HOWEVER, THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR PROPERLY TRAINED PERSONNEL, FOR MORE SPACE, AND MORE ALLOCATIONS. THE SCHOOL LIBRARY PROGRAM SHOULD BE COORDINATED WITH THE ENTIRE SCHOOL CURRICULUM IN ORDER TO STRUCTURE TEACHING UNITS, TO MEET SPECIAL STUDENT NEEDS, AND TO PROMOTE PROFESSIONAL RELATIONS. THE SCHOOL LIBRARY'S WORK SHOULD BE RELATED TO COMMUNITY NEEDS THROUGH THE PARENT TEACHERS ASSOCIATION.
