Friends Groups...School Libraries

Reed, Sally G. Friends Groups: Critical Support for School Libraries [toolkit]. Philadelphia: United for Libraries, 2013.

About the Toolkit
...gives tips on gaining school support; raising the profile of the school library; generating excitement; establishing a friends group of parents, faculty and community members; creating a student friends group and more.

“With school libraries closing across the country, it is becoming more important than ever before for school librarians to develop friends groups,” said United for Libraries Executive Director Sally Gardner Reed. “Friends have been keeping public libraries open and even staving off budget cuts for years – they can do the same for school libraries.”

This toolkit is also available online.
