Welcome to the School Library
Martin, Nelle
Knowledge Quest, v40 n5 p64-65 May-Jun 2012
Too often, lost and lonely students seem to find their way to the school library. School librarians are blessed with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these young people. In this article, the author describes how she developed a program called the "Lunch Bunch" to help lost and lonely students who were seeking a place of refuge. Providing a caring, nurturing environment is the responsibility of every school, and this program is a promising step in that direction. It is so gratifying to see the lost and lonely who come to the school library blossom, make friends, and develop a sense of belonging. The author stresses that creating a caring environment only takes a welcoming smile and a friendly greeting.
