Review quote

"This valuable book guides school-based personnel through the steps of how their school librarian can help improve test scores. As school budgets are cut, school systems are becoming more data driven, "if it isn't tested we can't spend money on it." Audrey Church provides the reader with research to show that even if there is not a test for library skills the librarian can help improve test scores. In chapter one, recent research on school libraries is provided and briefly explains the results in layman terms. This is followed by a chapter each for the administrators, teachers, and parents that describes what each needs to know about the library and librarian's roles. A chapter is included for the librarian on what they need to do. The final chapter pulls the book together with perspectives from principals and librarians. The appendix includes a chronological list of research studies with key findings. This book can serve as a means to start a dialog with the administration and at the same time as a reference book for the school librarian. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
