Library Service at the Secondary-School Level

by Eleanor M. Witmer - 1943

The nature of library service in secondary schools is most readily understood when translated into pupil, teacher, and librarian activities. This chapter, therefore, presents several first-hand descriptions of school libraries in action in communities where the objectives, basic philosophy, and financial support of the schools cause variations in methods and services. Each school and library described is engaged in the process of educational change. No one of them has attained all its goals or entirely fulfilled its accepted role in the community. These descriptions must, therefore, be taken as merely indicating directions of growth and efforts to progress toward recognized ideals.
