When students enter middle school, the library is no longer a weekly special class. There’s a narrative that students don’t enjoy reading. It’s hard work. It’s true they have an easier time consuming digital media. At this critical time, we should not be putting up roadblocks to secondary school readers. The librarian's challenge is to build relationships with students, put stimulating books into their hands, and fuel the fire sparked by parents, public, and elementary school librarians. Join Elmbrook Middle School Library Leads as they share how they increase circulation an average of 20% annually.
