AbstractWagner and Bishop report on a study of the positive effects on students’ reading skills of the introduction and maintenance of a school/community library in Western Samoa. It had a marked positive influence upon the ESL reading comprehension skills of its pupils when tested over an 18-month period. This study adds more evidence to support the assertion that flooding a school with interesting books, no matter what the language, markedly improves pupils’ language skills.
