Why School Libraries Matter

Featuring interviews with school librarians, administrators, and education professionals, the video School Libraries Matter: The Changing Role of the School Librarian from Capstone explains the evolution of the school library and why they are even more important now in the digital age. 

“Consistently we see a direct impact in settings where there is a school librarian. If there is someone working in that capacity in the school, reading scores are higher, kids do better,” Rebecca T. Miller, Editorial Director of Library Journal and School Library Journal, says in the film. “Librarians are completely integrated into the learning of kids across technologies and they are one of the great team builders of our schools. When they have the freedom to do good work, it’s transformative.”
