Dr. Stephen Krashen: “The Case for Libraries & Librarians”

Invited Paper, Submitted to the Obama-Biden Education Policy Working Group, December, 2008

  • Research shows that better public and school libraries are related to better reading achievement. The reason for this is obvious: Children become better readers by reading more (Krashen, 2004), and the library is a major source of books for children.

Better Libraries = Better Reading Scores

“Study after study has shown that library quality (number of books available or books per student) isrelated to reading achievement at the state, national, and international level, even when researchers control for the effects of poverty.”

Lance, 1994, McQuillan, 1998, Elley, 1992, Krashen, Lee and McQuillan, 2008

The 2010 Colorado Library Study confirms:

“Stronger library programs were associated with reduced percentages of students receiving unsatisfactory CSAP scores, thereby helping to close the achievement gap.”

Francis, Briana Hovendick, Keith Curry Lance & ZethLietzau. (November 2010) “School Librarians Continue to Help Students Achieeve Standards: The Third Colorado Study. (2010). http://www.lrs.org/documents/closer_look/CO3_2010_Closer_Look_Report.pdf

“Providing access to books is

necessary but is not sufficient: Not all children who have access to libraries take full advantage of them (Peck, 2000, Celano and Neuman, 2008). Keith Curry Lance's studies confirm that the presence of librarians and overall staffing contributes to reading achievement independent of other measures of library quality. The most obvious way librarians contribute is helping children find books, in addition to selecting books and other materials for the library, and collaborating with teachers.”
