This study aims to emphasize the effectiveness of volunteer teachers who undertake responsibilities related to the services of Enriched Libraries (ELs) by determining the effectiveness of librarianship. Quality and continuity of services will be possible with librarians who have degree in information management, and it is foreseen to increase the service quality in both current and future ELs. The population of the study consisted of 343 teachers working in primary and secondary schools; the sample consists of 79 teachers. Teachers responsible for EL services were found underqualified regarding titles (general approach to ELs, use of library, quality of services, management of library, collection, activities, professional knowledge about librarianship, budget), but interested in librarianship. In conclusion, it was shown that, qualified librarians should be appointed to Els; and lasting, quality services will be achieved with librarians alone.
