The librarian profession with its rich tradition through the centuries of its existence has been in function for humans, but it has been changing in accordance to the changes in society, adjusting to the demands of the new users. The changes in the society had dictated the need for changes in the schools, and with that, the need for change in the classical school libraries, in accordance to the educational and cultural needs of the contemporary school. With the alignment of the librarian work with the contemporary positive changes in schools, there is successful development and fulfillment of the socially valorized needs of the users of schools libraries from all areas (educational, upbringing, cultural and informative). The successful management with the school libraries in the contemporary schools can lead to increase in the quality of education. There are a few researches for the school libraries in general in our country, which means that this important segment from the educational-upbringing process in a marginalized position. This approach of insufficient attention towards the school libraries can influence the decrease of their role in the educational-upbringing process, i.e. it can decrease the degree of use of school libraries and the quality of services it can offer to its users.
