Description: From School Library Journal
Library Power was an initiative funded by the DeWitt Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund from 1988 to 1998 to provide money to improve public school libraries in 19 communities in various parts of the country. Although the authors focus on the results of this revitalization effort, the lessons learned in the process are applicable to all school libraries. According to surveys of teachers, principals, and media specialists, plus case studies conducted by the School of Library and Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison and its School of Education, library improvements resulted primarily from expanded, updated collections, collaborative planning, and flexible scheduling. Statistics showed that these libraries were increasingly used and appreciated by the school community. Other areas addressed include curriculum and professional development, instruction, and institutionalizing reform. Questionnaires from the study are appended. This readable description and analysis will be useful for anyone interested in improving school libraries.
