Hello friends,

At a meeting last week, I was given a document released by the Ontario Ministry of 
Education in December 2004.  It is entitled Literacy for Learning - The Report of 
the Expert Panel on Literacy in Grades 4 to 6 in Ontario, and it makes some 
positive references to the importance of school libraries to student literacy, and 
even has a chapter sub-heading on school libraries.  (The counterpart report for 
grades K-3, published in 2003, made a couple references to teacher-librarians as 
one of many who may be involved in a school, but made no reference to the role of 
the school library in supporting literacy and/or reading).  It seems sad that I 
should be excited about seeing school libraries mentioned in a literacy report - to 
me it is so obvious that school libraries play an important role in literacy...  Oh 
well, it is good to have school libraries mentioned!
