Photos can be tweeted or posted to Instagram with the #ShowUsYourLibrary
Jake Naughton for Education Week—File

April is School Library Month. In 2016 Education Week asked school librarians and teachers to use Twitter and Instagram to post photos that represented the importance of their school and classroom library, using the hashtag #ShowUsYourLibrary.

Our aim was to gather a wide variety of images from school and classroom libraries all around the world to show the difference that librarians and libraries make in student learning.

Education Week curated the images and assembled them into the photo gallery below to showcase these important spaces.

The Fine Print:

While you maintain the copyright to submitted photographs, Education Week may reuse these photographs to promote and/or advertise this project.
