Literacy Rich Libraries by Kurt Stroh

Literacy Rich Libraries: What if your school library created excitement for books that overflowed into the reading culture of your school?  What if your library was a place that supported the literacy instruction happening in classrooms?  What if your school library was a place where students chose to go – even during recess?  Well, it can be!

Many LCN Members enjoyed Kurt Stroh’s, East Oakview Elementary, Northview Public Schools story about his first year as a new teacher-librarian who transformed the library  into a major support for literacy.  Many of your requested the “Why Not” list of transforming libraries.
