If you are planning your school's first library this book will guide you through each step. If your school already has a library this book will help you to ensure its success -but do think carefully before you make any changes. You may not need to make many improvements if the books and other stock are easy to find, if they are in good condition and if people use the library whenever it is open. However, if your library suffers from complicated procedures that are not maintained, if it lacks stock or if it is underused by students (perhaps because they think it is an unfriendly place), then this book will help you. It explains how to improve and simplify your library systems and gives you ideas to encourage students and teachers to use the library.
