- Luma Fakhir Abdul-Razzaq
The study aimed at identifying the attitudes of Jordanian female kindergarten teachers towards children's libraries. It also aimed at identifying whether there is any statistically significant difference – at the statistical significance level of (a ≤ 0.05) - between respondents’ attitudes which can be attributed to their years of experience or academic qualifications. The sample consisted of (161) out of 167 (96.4%), female kindergarten teachers in the public schools located in Karak Governorate, Jordan. A questionnaire was used for collecting data. Several statistical methods were used.
It was found that Jordanian female kindergarten teachers in Karak Governorate have moderate attitudes towards children's libraries. It was also found that there is a statistically significant difference - at the statistical significance level of (a ≤ 0.05) between the respondents’ attitudes towards children's libraries which can be attributed to their years of experience and academic qualification.
The study recommended that more attention should be paid to achieve the goals of the Child's Library. She also recommended the need to improve the reality of the libraries, and continue to provide them with the latest sources of information allocated to children by different age groups of childhood, and secure qualified teacher/ librarians.
