Linking School Libraries and Literacy

Added 25 Jul 2009

Read about what children and young people thought about school libraries in 2009 – did they use them? If yes, why? If not, why not? It also outlines how school library usage differs according to background demographics and reading attainment, and how it relates to wider enjoyment of reading, attitudes towards reading and reading frequency.

The results are based on an online survey of 17,089 pupils aged 8 to 16 from 112 schools, which we conducted in November – December 2009.
