The purpose of a school library

“There are a wide range of reasons to have a school library, and when it’s supported the difference it can make is really significant. It can be harder to capture because it doesn’t sit within a single subject, year group, or area of responsibility, but it can be felt across the community, in the very fabric of the school.”
