The School Library Programs staff:

  • Supports certified Oklahoma school librarians in assisting students and teachers to become effective users of ideas and information.
  • Guides schools to meet rigorous library accreditation standards.
  • Advises Oklahoma school librarians on how to manage an effective library.

An Effective School Library:

  • Offers a wide variety of materials -- reference, fiction, and nonfiction -- in a broad range of reading levels.
  • Provides access to current information by integrating new technologies into the curriculum.
  • Is cost-effective, allowing many readers access to one book.
  • Allows the school librarians to team with teachers to create and present lessons.

Our school libraries launch students into a world of new knowledge by providing instant access to exciting books, online resources, and emerging technologies. They provide equal opportunities to all students for learning.

Certified school librarians are an essential part of a school's faculty, partnering with educators to connect 21st Century learners with resources. They empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, and ethical users of information.
