The existence of an effective and apposite governance structure is vital for the survival and functionality of an organisation, including school libraries. School library committees are governance structures indispensable for the establishment, development and maintenance of effective and functional school libraries world-wide. In South Africa, the establishment of school committees including library committees is sanctioned by the South African Schools Act (SASA) Number 84 of 1996. This is a concept paper sharing insights on how school library committees as governance structures could be repositioned to champion, influence and provide strategic direction and guidance for the development of school libraries.
