• promotes a culture of readers through classroom book talks, individual reading recommendations, and recognizing student interest by displaying student “READ” posters
• develops a relevant collection of fiction and non-fiction accommodating reading choices for all students
• manages resources to support teaching and learning
• provides guidance and promotion of literature circle titles
• provides motivation and guidance for students to read for enjoyment and understanding
• creates a positive atmosphere inviting students and staff to feel welcome using their library
