The Anxious Weeder: Keeping Your Collection Fresh

The Anxious Weeder: Keeping Your Collection Fresh

About this Session:
Teacher librarians, library technicians and other school library staff often inherit their spaces and are not starting from the ground up.  When the space is overwhelming and you don't know where to start, weeding a collection can seem insurmountable and cause plenty of anxiety.  Learn a few strategies to keep anxiety at bay when weeding your school library collection and turn your floundering field into a manicured masterpiece!  
Participants will learn:
1. Why school library collections should be weeded on a regular basis
2. What needs to be regularly removed from a school's library collection
3. Practical steps that can be taken to harness this overwhelming task
