Flexible Scheduling - Library Media

Published: 7/26/2017 6:45 PM

An open or flexible library schedule means students and teachers are able to access the school library throughout the day to use information sources, to read for pleasure and to meet and work with other students and teachers. A flexible schedule also provides opportunities for students and teachers to access the certified librarian for guidance in the inquiry process and for support in accessing print and digital resources for content reading and reading for pleasure. A school library with a flexible schedule provides an opportunity for classroom teachers to participate in co-teaching and collaboration with the certified librarian.
