This paper examines the ways school libraries can provide services for the successful implementation of Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Nigeria. After tracing the origin and objectives of UBE, it discusses the concept of school libraries and their role in education. Library services are crucial to the success of UBE in Nigeria. They include library space in all schools, extension services, adequate and relevant information sources, recreational reading material, library work and study rooms, and resource-sharing between school libraries and public libraries.
