Best Practices


Book and AV repair/replacement - Book repairs usually occur in-house, when salvageable. Book repairs are left up to the discretion of the school librarian.  If a book it is not repairable, the book can be replaced, as budget permits. This item is then added to the "items to be replaced" list and removed from circulation until further replacement. With any repair or replacement, the school librarian needs to consider whether the repair or replacement of worn books or AV equipment is worth the cost (Is the book still popular or necessary for county curriculum? Is the piece of equipment still a necessary item for the school library?).
