School Libraries Work!

The 2016 Edition of School Libraries Work! provides evidence of the positive impact of school librarians and libraries on student learning, while confirming that when school librarian staffing is reduced, student achievement in English language arts (ELA) suffers. From leading experts including Dr. Carol C. Kuhlthau, Dr. Keith Curry Lance and Dr. Ross J. Todd, the national- and state-level findings from more than 30 separate research studies included in the report demonstrate the integral role school libraries play in teaching and supporting student success.
