I will be updating what the perfect school library environment looks like for the next week or so.
1. Time — The library aide needs to have time to plan for their classes, do the library housework, and allow teachers and students 15 minutes a day to find a new book.
2. Space — I need help to figure out the optimal shelf space for each different book type(Picture, fiction, nonfiction, and reference)
3. Amount of books for a good library. I think we have great library collections in all of our schools. We need to weed the collections and I know this is hard for a lot of people but it is necessary for a good collection.
It is good to know what your reference question is at the start of the weekend.
