General Guidelines

The annual report is written to:

  1. Communicate a summary of your library activities
  2. To advocate for your library (Share this report with anyone whose support you need to have for a strong library program -- your school administrators, PTSA, parents, etchers...)
  3. To gather data and anecdotal evidence of the value of school libraries

Library Goals

Choose 3 goals that you plan to work on in 2015-16

List the goals, and as you work on them, report your progress in whatever way you see fit -- that is, through a summary of your actions, through pictures, through anecdotes or links to artifacts such as examples of student work.

In the immortal words of  Robert Browning — "Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,Or what's a heaven for?"

Know that not achieving all 5 goals is not failure! You should have big ideas and big dreams for your library. And sometimes we can't put into action all that we dream about! That is okay!!

Resources

Resources can be many things. Here are a few ideas for this section:

  1. Library Services provides many resources for school libraries -- Gale databases, PebbleGo, Culturegrams, World Book, Noodletools, Overdrive, etc. Report on what district resources have been most/least useful to you this year. Let us know what you changes would like to see in the future.OR
  2. Resources can be people or outside agencies that you bring in or partner with to enrich your program. Tell us about these.OR
  3. Resources can be Apps or websites that you have found to be useful in teaching or library administration. Tell us about these.

 

Additional Boxes

Feel free to report on anything else you wish to share with your administrator or library supervisor about your program.

Pictures, charts, graphs, etc., are always welcome. This is where you can truly personalize your report if you choose.
