Library materials will be selected for the purposes of supporting 7th and 8th grade curriculum and to encourage independent reading.
These are some points of consideration:
- Does the item support the curriculum?
- Does the item fulfill teacher & student needs?
- Does the item support technology goals? Is it available in digital form?
- Is the item relevant and / or current?
- Does the item encourage reading for pleasure and fit with student interest?
Inventory And Weeding
Inventory takes place once a year or as necessary. If an item is missing for more than a school year it is deleted and / or replaced.
Periodic evaluation of materials will be conducted so as to maintain an up-to-date and balanced collection.
