School Libraries. Educational Building Digest.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
An effective school library requires a good supply of books and periodicals, adequate furniture, sufficient space, and a trained person to manage the facility efficiently. In Asia, where educational facilities are often in short supply, UNESCO has established a Regional Center for Book Development and has made recommendations for future development in the use of libraries. Each village school should have some sort of minimal library facility to encourage students to do exploratory reading and to learn basic research skills. Simple designs can be used to modify existing school plants to provide shelving, a catalog, seating, and a work area for the librarian. Sample plans are provided. (EMH)
