Libraries and Schools: Allies in Education
A Pew Research Center study examining the future of libraries showed that 85% of Americans strongly believe that schools and libraries should work more closely together and many libraries are rising to the need. As schools implement one-to-one computing programs, giving students individual laptops or tablets to use, the devices require content—such as e-books, audiobooks, and video footage—to be effective. Most libraries already have this content available and some are tailoring their online environments to assist schools.
