An Analysis of the Duties Pertaining to a High School Library


by Franklin W. Johnson 1927

THE following quotation from the writer's Administration and JL Supervision of the High School sets forth his conception of the scope and function of the library in the modern high school: "The complete lack or the meagerness of space suitable for library purposes in the great majority of our high school buildings reveals a striking failure to appreciate the important part which the school library should have in high school education. The tendency to limit the pupils' use of books to the prescribed texts and a few books of general reference, and the failure to teach how to use even these effectively, give little assurance that after pupils leave school they will know where to find or how to select and use good books or will have useful habits of reading either for enjoyment or for the practical purposes of life.
