School libraries play an increasingly important role in the learning process as new technologies for accessing information emerge and evolve. 

Research studies continue to show that an active school library program run by a certified and trained school librarian makes a significant difference to student learning outcomes.

Certified librarians prepare students to engage with information on any platform and use ideas and information effectively through critical thinking, evaluation, organization, analysis, communication, and creativity. 

Please explore this resource to see how school librarians empower students to become passionate readers, educated citizens, and prepared for college, career and life.
