NCTE President on why libraries are needed.

02/7/2012

Council Chronicle September 2011.

Major points in her essay:

  • Children use libraries.
  • Adults use libraries.
  • Better libraries mean better reading.
  • High levels of poverty mean little access to books.
  • Access to books appears to offset the impact of poverty.
  • Public library funding has declined.
  • School library funding has declined.

And

  • We still need books and libraries.
