This quantitative study explored the relationship between full-time school librarians and student achievement on standardized reading test scores in West Virginia public schools. Additionally, the reported roles of school librarians and amount of time school librarians collaborate with classroom teachers was also investigated. Similar studies have been conducted in other states, but none have been conducted in this Appalachian state. There was an increase in elementary student test scores when the access to a school librarian increased; however, it was not statistically significant. High school student test scores had statistical significance as the access to school librarians increased from part-time to full-time while controlling for socioeconomic status.
