Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Good grief, all classrooms are going to start operating like good libraries.” So says author Johnson, director of media and technology in Mankato, Minnesota; and from this quote, he proceeds to guide and cajole both new and veteran school librarians (K–12) to bring their A games and make positive and necessary changes to their school library programs. He focuses on topics such as program assessment, planning, advocacy, digital intellectual freedom, and the librarian’s role in curriculum development. This revised edition is 90 percent new, making it a valuable asset even to those who have dog-eared copies of the first edition. --Lynn Evarts

Review

• Provides both practical and visionary insights from an experienced, currently practicing librarian/library supervisor

• Supplies accessible and often humorous coverage of the subject without being simplistic

• Includes provocative ideas to stimulate thought and discussion

• Highlights the impact of technology on the library program and serves as a straightforward guide to changes needed in the field

• Offers an essential foundation of all aspects of managing a school library program



"This is a book that belongs in school library collections for frequent reference—and even more in the hands of administrators whose vision of the possibilities inherent in a school library might just be approaching the twenty-first century."
