What the Research says about Teacher Librarians

In 2016 Scholastic published a compendium of research supporting the effectiveness of certified teacher librarians. “School Libraries Work” is a 29 page pdf document that you can download here.

Education researchers Keith Curry Lance and Linda Hofschire conducted a study using data from the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) to document the impact of librarian layoffs on reading scores. They wrote about their research in an article for School Library Journal called “Something to Shout About: New research shows that more librarians means higher reading scores.”
