The elements discussed in this book reflect answers to questions dealing with the relationships of book accessibility to book segregation, fetch-and-take to sit-and-read, browsing to studying, book protection to student encouragement, discipline to comfort and relaxation, and talking to silence. Intended as a guide for all those who are concerned with the improvement of school library facilities, the text covers in detail such topics as the design of study carrels, the amount of shelving, the provision for reference books, the place for the careers library, the disposition of class and subject libraries, and the height of bookstacks.
