School Libraries Work! 2016 edition
A compilation of the research about the direct impact effective school libraries and school librarians have on student achievement.
An abundance of evidence strongly supports the connection between student achievement and the presence of school libraries with qualified school library media specialists. When library media specialists work with teachers to support learning opportunities with books, computer resources, and more, students learn more, get better grades, and score higher on standardized test scores than their peers in schools without good libraries.
