The paper discussed elaborately the organization and provision of a school library by defining a library in the present-day activities carried out in schools. It went further to highlight the personnel that is needed to organize the library resources, as well as the space to be provided for the administration of the library. Space covered the size of the building, the location of the library within the school premises, and its architectural design to meet the present-day learning environment. The resources to be organized include books, shelves, carrels that will be housed in decent spacious buildings, and how these resources can be organized were also discussed. A detailed explanation was given on the use of the Universal Dewey Decimal Classification Scheme in cataloging school library resources. Using this scheme in classifying and arranging library resources will enable easy access to the books and other information needs of pupils. Items arranged should be labeled and protected with shelf guides. The paper concluded that teacher-librarians should be involved in training through workshops, seminars. Also, that librarian should endeavor to come up with a proposal toward helping teacher-librarians in order to promote leadership in schools.
