Dual use school and community libraries can be a cost effective solution in times of financial restraint. Here is a clear and concise guideline put together by experienced librarians with insight and expertise who themselves have provided effective partnerships for their schools and communities and draw on the results of their nationwide survey of these libraries. Covering the essential areas of management, access, safeguarding, staffing, budgets, accommodation, resources and activities and including two interesting and detailed case studies, this publication will be useful reading for anyone running or considering establishing a library service for both a school and a community.
