School libraries and public libraries have the common goal of developing the reading skills of their constituents. However, this goal has been often been compromised due to economic pressures. As a result, many libraries have suffered cuts in services and resources. This research project is a review of literature that explores the consequences of these economic pressures and explains how school and public libraries have started to work together to provide services to children. Different models of collaboration between libraries will be explained and examples of successful partnerships will be discussed.
