The Elementary Library Project was undertaken in order to establish and expand fifteen school libraries in areas of high concentration of low income families. The objectives of the project were to increase pupil use of the library, to increase teacher use of library materials, and to improve student work-study skills. For children lacking a home environment conducive to proper study habits the project provides (a) a convenient and inviting place to study during and outside of regular school hours, (b) readily accessible print and non-print materials, and (c) a librarian aide trained at the subprofessional level to assist the pupils in selection and use of material. Evaluation of the project involved examination of changes in student achievement and attitudes, library circulation and attendance records, and teachers', librarian aides', and principals' reactions to the library project.
