READS- Florida’s K-12 Integrated Library Media Reading Guidelines


  • Read (as a personal activity)
  • Explore (characteristics, history and awards of creative works)
  • Analyze (structure and aesthetic features of creative works)
  • Develop (a literary-based product)
  • Score (reading progress)

One of the goals of the school library media program is to provide intellectual and physical access to a broad range of literature and informational reading materials for personal pleasure and curriculum support. Library media programs aggressively support reading through a variety of promotional and instructional strategies that are carefully crafted to meet the unique needs of learners at each developmental stage. Additionally, the library instructional and promotional activities are collaboratively planned with classroom teachers so that the concepts and skills taught in the classroom are reinforced, enriching the learning experience.
