April marks the annual observation of School Library Month. During this time, media specialists are encouraged to demonstrate the benefits of the school library. This observation enables schools and communities to recognize the importance of the media center to the students (American Library Association, 2013).
Teachers, this is a great time to learn how the school library can enhance and strengthen your students’ education with its valuable resources.
