This is my annual report for 2013-2014 Lothrop's library.

Collection Development

Focus on Fiction and Story Collection (short stories)

Circulation/Fines Strategies


Library Goals

1. My first goal would be to fill the library with more diverse books with characters from different places and cultures. I want it to be the norm and not just a separate unit where we are studying a different country.

2. My second goal is that the students can find their books more independently. I would like to be able to give the students a call number and they know where to go without my help.

3. My third goal is to raise my check out numbers. I want to get more books into the students hands.

4. My fourth goal is to get the students to all know the difference between fiction and non-fiction books just by looking at the library label.

5. My fifth goal is to get the fourth graders to help with the younger grades more. I think it is a great activity when I have the older kids help with the younger grades with reading, computers, or checking out books.
