Summary

The standards for school library programs in the state of Pennsylvania call for a model library stocked with a variety of media and staffed by a teacher who is a qualified librarian or media specialist. The library should complement the school instructional program and its educational philosophy; the librarian and classroom teacher should schedule regular library visits in addition to appointed times during which students may use the library for study and recreational reading. Library budgets are to be drawn up by the school district administration and the district library media coordinator; funds are allocated on a per pupil basis. A ratio of one library media staff member for every six teaching staff members is recommended. A starting collection of 20 items per pupil or 9,000 items, whichever is greater, should eventually be expanded to 40 items per pupil. The library's collection must be previewed and evaluated in consultation with the teaching staff before materials are acquired. The size of the library is to be determined by the number of students to use its facilities, and whether it is part of an elementary or a secondary school. (KC)
