Purpose: The purpose of the research is to compare the viewpoints of Ahvaz high-school teachers and students about the necessity of existence of school libraries and professional librarians, to determine the position of libraries in the education system.

Findings: The results showed that students and teachers are persistent for the necessity of school library. It seems that Students were suspicious about abilities of “Ketabyar” (a master student as librarian) in handling school library. Also, The results showed that there were significant differences among teachers and students' viewpoints in subscales of necessity of existence of school libraries, the curriculum relevance to school library resources and services, and the amount of "ketabyar" ability in answering student’s information needs.
Originality/value: this research is valuable in showing the necessity of school library and librarian in Iran and the fact that “Ketabyar” as librarian is unreliable.
