Martins, Ana Bela; Marques, Alexandra
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
The main purpose of this paper is to present how an intensive collaboration between the National Portuguese Reading Plan and the School Libraries Network Programme plays an important role in the promotion of reading literacy as a baseline to develop all kinds of other literacy abilities and empower the role of school libraries and the collaborative work between the school community and the school library, by reporting on one of the most significant projects, which shows the relevance of this partnership. School libraries are a privileged structure in the school for skill development, not only in accessing information, available locally or remotely, enabling students with critical thinking, transforming information to knowledge, supporting curricula, but also in readers training and the promotion of reading habits, which is a basic tool for lifelong learning.
