In the past elementary schools were not planned with provisions for a library as it was not considered essential. Whether teacher, librarian, or administrator, there is a duty to convince those who are responsible for the building and equipping elementary schools of the necessity of a library. In order to meet the requirements of a mondern educational program, library service is essential in the elementary school as ain a high school or college. Most educators today, however, recognize the library for what it is --an integral part of the school, an essential element in an educative program. When all educators arrive at this realization, teachers and students can be assured that they will receive adequate library service which is almost indispensable in a modern educational system.
