Igniting the Spark: Library Programs That Inspire High School Patrons

By Roger Leslie; Patricia Potter Wilson | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

We are grateful to the media specialists, university professors, and friends who supported us throughout this project. First, we thank the 20 school library media specialists who provided the model programs and ideas that make up Chapter 8. That section brings to life every explanation throughout the text. Without their dynamic program ideas, this book could not have been written.

The professors in the School of Education at University of Houston–Clear Lake generously shared their time and knowledge. As always, Ms. Ann Kimzey was there to advise us and proofread the manuscript. Dr. Maureen White encouraged us throughout the project, and her young adult (YA) literature class searched the Internet for interesting Web sites for the YA authors included in Chapter 6. We particularly want to thank Julie Hardegree and Kit Chiu for the numerous hours they spent searching the Internet for outstanding Web sites as well. Finally, this book could never have been completed without the technology skills of Mr. Isidro Grau.

Although many library media specialists were involved in this project, we extend a special thank-you to the University of Houston–Clear Lake students enrolled in school library internships. They worked diligently examining model programs in various school districts. We also thank Dr. Barry Bishop and Ms. Diane Durbin for their support throughout the project.

Finally, we thank Jerry Roberts, Wendell Wilson, and Richard and Jerry Leslie for sharing our vision and enthusiasm for this book.
