FOR THE LOVE OF READING: THE READERS' ADVISORY INTERVIEW IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER
This research study examines the readers' advisory interview in the elementary school library media center. Ten interviews were conducted with media specialists currently practicing in North Carolina elementary schools. Participant responses helped to identify steps taken during the readers' advisory interview as well as the school-specific influences on this interview. Current practices are combined with existing literature to provide recommendations for conducting a successful readers' advisory interview, establishing a climate favorable to the promotion of recreational reading in the elementary school, and publicizing the unique skills of the media specialist.
