Collection Development (including potential book orders with reviews and Library Advisory Committee members): WPE Book Budget, Guidelines, & Lists 2023-2024
Our Library Advisory Council must be composed of at least our school’s media specialist, two teachers, one parent, and one community member. LAC members will be asked to read professional book reviews for all books being considered for purchase for student circulation in our library and will be utilizing our Collection Development policy to evaluate individual titles and provide input regarding book orders for the library in our meetings. Meetings will be on the following dates at 1:45 in the school library, unless a majority of the new council decides to make changes to fit the needs of the council: September 21st (during our first Scholastic Book Fair), February 29th (during our second Scholastic Book Fair), and May 1st (following SSYRA announcements). Please contact Ms. Ratliff if you are interested in attending our school LAC meetings.
