While I was disappointed to see a small drop in circulation this year, I am still proud that almost 30,000 books were circulated at Marrs Middle school this year. I believe the drop can most likely be attributed to a reading teacher who did not bring her classes down for regular checkout and several language arts teachers who felt their schedules were to busy to participate in whole group checkout. One of my goals for next year is to re-engage those teachers in a routine checkout schedule.
During the 2016-2017 school year, a purposeful effort was made to weed all collections in the library. Fiction books were weeded by condition and circulation, removing books that had not been checked out in the past 3 years. Non-fiction books were weeded by relevancy, circulation, and condition. This year school year, less weeding was needed after the intense efforts of last year. Still, roughly 500 books were weeded throughout the school year mainly due to poor condition. The majority of these books were in the fiction sections.
