Abstract The teacher-librarian plays a leading role in the learning process - a process that emphasizes inquiry-discovery methods. A clear point that has emerged from this method is that students must necessarily develop a love for voluntary reading cultivating in a reading culture. It is argued in this paper that the teacher-librarian is in a good vantage position to help students to develop reading habits and skills that will promote a reading culture. The processes for developing such habits and skills are also discussed.
