Publication date: 1 July 1990


Questions why no research has been done into libraries and librarians, either school or public, from the child′s viewpoint. Notes results of a project where children were asked to draw their impressions of a library and discusses the results. Concludes by asking what is the future of the “real books” approach by teachers and educationalists if libraries are to be perceived as so much “spare capacity” within the school building.
