I found an interesting article on school libraries. I spent lots of time in school libraries and public libraries. We had a great public library that was huge in the town where I grew up. Once a week my Mom would take us to check out and returns books. This was say 50 years ago and they had programs we participated in too. I loved my school's library too. As you can tell I read a LOT!
Anyway back to the article it is here New Report from Scholastic Shows School Libraries Work I don't know if they have a period during a child's day where they take the kids to the school library or not anymore. We did in graade school and I think it is a great thing to do to encourage young readers.
Isn't this an awesome school library. It is Bowden Primary school but I don't know where that is.
