Open Access Graduate Research Paper
A school librarian is often called upon to talk with groups of teachers and parents, as well as to present the library program to the administration, the school board, and the community. For these talks, more concrete material than, "I think . . . ," is needed. The purpose of this project was to gain from wide and varied reading a background that would serve as source material in presenting recreational reading to the above-mentioned groups.
Literally volumes of material have been written on the subject of recreational reading, numerous research studies have been made, and general concern by the public has been stated. The plan was to read from many sources--research studies, textbooks, conference reports, and periodicals-- written by researchers, specialists in the reading field, administrators, and classroom teachers. From this vast wealth of writings, a selective bibliography was chosen, and the findings from these selections were organized into broad divisions that seem to tell the story of recreational reading in the elementary school.
