dc.description.abstract Motivating students to become lifelong readers by engaging in leisure reading is one of my goals as a teacher-librarian. However, based on my daily experience at my junior-senior high school and our circulation statistics, it seems that leisure reading decreases dramatically at the senior high level. One goal of this project was to gather information regarding the reading habits and attitudes toward reading of senior high students and factors that either discourage or motivate leisure reading at this level. Data was also collected concerning student usage and opinion of the school library. A second goal was to explore the implications of the collected data and suggest ways I, as teacher-librarian, and those senior high English teachers involved in the project can respond to this information in order to encourage our senior high students to engage in leisure reading. en
