School Libraries Linked to Student Success

South Carolina is the first state to conduct a detailed study of this kind. In particular, seven qualities relating to school libraries were correlated with student achievement on tests for English language arts (ELA) and writing standards:

  • Library staffing
  • Spending
  • Teacher-Librarian Collaboration
  • Circulation
  • Collection size
  • Access to computers
  • Frequency of group visits

We have known in the past how important our role is, but this groundbreaking study proves that and validates what we already know: The school librarian and the library program help make schools stronger. (School Library Journal)
