This book will be useful in facilitating conversations about how school librarians can be instrumental in transforming teaching and learning in schools today. I would use this book to inspire rich conversations with principals and school librarians about their important and evolving roles and how it can change the traditional landscape of school libraries. -- Beth Niedermeyer, PhD, superintendent, Noblesville (IN) Schools
Chapters are broken into realistic and helpful areas; the Research Findings section is a great resource; and the one-sentence summaries with the Additional Readings section are brief but so informative. -- Martha J. Eagle, EdD, director of instruction and human resources, Amelia County (VA) Public Schools
Teachers, administrators, and other staff can use this book and apply it to practice because of the many suggestions and examples of strategies mentioned throughout. -- Carrie Mouser Gravely, EdD, principal, Blackstone Primary School, Nottoway County (VA) Public Schools
The book outlines in a format that is clear and concise the key roles of the librarian, making it easier for an administrator to clearly identify what should/could be occurring in that role and assess whether those elements are in place in an effective manner. At the same time, the book give examples and resources for administrators who are seeking to expand or augment the current role of their school librarian. -- Scott "Shep" Critzer, EdD, director of student services, Charlotte County (VA) Public Schools
