This publication seeks to aid school librarians who wish to move from being efficient keepers of materials to active players in the teaching/learning process. Part I discusses the components of a school system and relates the role of the library media program to each one. The discussion of the needs of contemporary TV-influenced students, whose socioeconomic and cultural differences effect library access and use, is particularly relevant. Part II involves a detailed study of issues that Donham believes are essential to a successful integration of the library media center into the instructional program. Areas include collaborative planning, technology, information skills, assessment, and scheduling. A thoughtful review of reading literacy studies challenges librarians to consider the long-term effects of incentive programs on reading motivation. Each chapter ends with specific action strategies; numerous charts include evaluations for Web sites, audiovisual materials, and lesson design. Donham's key point is that successful library programs must be simultaneously proactive and responsive. This well-documented handbook illustrates ways to achieve that leadership balance in every area.-Debbie Johnson, Richardson West Junior High School, TX
