5 Reasons Why
(schools benefit from a
full time librarian in each library)

Students and staff form a committee
to choose a book to read as a school
All students read the book and discussion
can happen to work on comprehension
Teams are formed to compete
and bring the book to life
Prizes are awarded and can include a
fundraiser to support a local charity
A video from a school with the program-
You are my 'school' now
The RTI groups could be even more differentiated
The librarian could take a group in each grade
for smaller groups and specialized instruction
Another person is available for reading testing
Could some part of salary then come from
At Risk funds?
Take pride in your 'students', you are 'smarter' then those who have none
A librarian could be available to help
with small groups during study hall
Small groups could work on lessons to
enrich skills for a positive experience
at school and improve 21st century skills
Not all who 'collaborate' are lost
Collaboration can be done between
classroom teachers and librarian for
curriculum, technology, and reading
Past projects include
8th grade LA book trailers
7th grade Non-fiction unit
6th grade biography unit
5th grade archeology intro
5-8 research in art including
artists, environment, clip art
If the school is 1:1
can be a technology
coach for teachers
Never underestimate a pretty little 'reading promotion'
May the odds ever be in your favor 'to read'
The truth about 'libraries' is that it is 'the place for reading achievement' right now
Over 21 state studies confirm that school librarians
and school libraries support students in academic achievement, lifelong learning, 21st century skills, and reading. -Graduate class project Mansfield University 2011

Schools with librarians have 35 percent more
fourth graders who score proficient or above than schools
without librarians. Michigan study 2003

Student test scores were higher the more time librarians
worked cooperatively with classroom teachers, the more
they taught information literacy independently, and the
more they provided in-service training to teachers. -Pennsylvania study 2000

Teachers were three times more likely to rate their literacy
teaching as excellent when they collaborated with
librarians. -Idaho study 2009

The Iowa study Make the Connection in 2002 showed students had higher reading scores as the hours a library
was open and staffed with a certified librarian increased.

This study also showed with more certified librarian hours meant more time was available for incentive programs and helped with reading scores
More information on all the school library studies can be found at http://www.lrs.org/data-tools/school-libraries/impact-studies/
45 percent of students in grades three through ten increased their CSAP test scores over the course of a year, compared with just 29 percent of students who did not have a school librarian at their school. -Colorado study 2010
Higher test scores were correlated with higher staffing levels, larger and more current collections, greater amounts of technology resources, longer hours of operation, and more time spent on instructionally-related student and teacher activities. -Wisconsin study 2005
There was improvement in student achievement after the passing of a referendum that allowed a steady source of income for school library media programs. Before the referendum, the students’ scores placed them in the middle statewide; after the referendum, they were among the top performers. -Delaware 2005
Schools with library media centers and services display a 10.6 percent positive relationship to student achievement measured using the WAMI. -Missouri study 2004
What other teacher do you ask to share 800 students and have an associate teach part of their classes?
Reading promotion
programs can be
created to build a
better reading community
