If you’ve been struggling to find the time and resources to start up a friends group for your school library, help has arrived. United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, has created a free toolkit geared toward school librarians for just this purpose, and it is now freely available at their website.
Friends Groups: Critical Support for School Libraries gives tips on gaining school support; raising the profile of the school library; generating excitement; establishing a friends group of parents, faculty, and community members; creating a student friends group, and more. Media specialists can take advantage of this free resource and get to building a group of friends and advocates for your school library.
