about

Drawing on her long experience as a school librarian, the author uses this middle school library programming book to help you promote free voluntary reading through innovative workshops, staff training, collection development, and collaborative curricular planning. Her goal: to revive the enthusiasm for reading that is often lost by the middle school years. Her recommendation: creative library literacy programming designed to pique flagging interest in reading for pleasure. Chapters focus on how to use the school's calendar and curriculum to get the time needed for the focused program as well as ways to manipulate budgets, get grants and other monies to build a strong literature-oriented program and collection. One chapter focuses entirely on how to get faculty to become readers of YA and children's literature in order to become models for their students. Other programs discussed are author visits, book fairs, whole school reading programs, journaling for readers and many more. Also included is an annotated bibliography of great reads. Grades 4-12.

Editorial Reviews

"Follos, a school librarian since 1989, focuses on middle school readers and the real-life resources and demands of reading programs and school library programming. She describes why keeping kids involved in literature is more important than ever, especially in an age of mass communication pile-up. She shows the importance of literature in libraries that double as havens and instruments of time management, cooperative planning with other educators and the administration, setting up the foundations for literature programs, including integrating literature into the curriculum and working with adolescent development. She then gives a number of great ideas, such as title trekking, readers' workshops, story time enhancements and journaling, developing a visiting author program, raising cash, and using young adult literature to help adults."-Reference & Research Book News
