Abstract: 
Research shows that school libraries have a positive impact on student literacy and learning, as it encourages reading. This exploratory mixed-methods case study focuses on what and how Singapore children in one primary school read, and their reading behaviours in their school library. Data was collected through library observations, focus groups and interviews. Findings showed that lower primary and upper primary students have different reading interests and behave differently in school libraries. It is recommended that the library collection and design of space cater to the different needs of lower and upper primary students.
