One of the courses that I took last semester was the course 534 which is titled ” Management of Learning Resources Centers” with Dr. Taghreed Alqudsi. The course focused on the essential role of the school librarians in education and in the community. The school librarian acts as a teacher, leader, instructional partner and many other roles that can enhance the performance of our students in schools from KG1 to High school. In Kuwait many school librarians are facing problems in the sense of low salary, the image , the motivation and other constraints that affect the development of our school libraries but there are on the other hand plans and people in the decision making positions who really are working hard in the development of our school libraries with new vision in having the best school libraries in the sense of adopting new technologies and new designs for school libraries to make it challenging with other school libraries in the region and in the middle east. It is very essential that our policies should focus more and assign huge budgets to develop our school libraries and in the same time encourage professionals in the field of library and information science to enrol in working as school librarians and encourage them to have the best salaries and more managerial activities in developing the school libraries in Kuwait.
