“The main focus of this blog post has been about the need for principals to step up and support teachers with building classroom libraries.  However, I want to be clear this is not at the expense of your building library.  Principals should not be taking funds away from the school library for classroom libraries.  We are not choosing between funding school libraries and classroom libraries.  You need to do BOTH!  In fact, your school librarian is your best resource when it comes to building classroom libraries.  We need to build time into our librarian’s schedule to collaborate with teachers to help pick books for the classroom libraries.  Librarians are our experts in matching students with books.  The research is clear that both types of libraries play a vital role in growing lifelong readers.”
