Canadian School Libraries has created a suite of resources outlining the positive influence of school libraries on student learning. The resources were compiled as a response to a recent news story about a new school being built in Nunavut without a school library.
Access the resources through the Canadian School Libraries website.
Canadian School Libraries is looking for input from school libraries/librarians across the country: How do you plan on keeping your students engaged in reading, thinking, and making over the summer? CSL plans on including the feedback in the Spring issue of CSL Journal.
