Finished my last working day yesterday. Circulated 57,700 items this school year...in a 4 - 6 grade school with about 1300 student population.
WOW, we were busy. Along with 62 biweekly scheduled classes and over 7000 dropin computer users, and 63,000 plus Accelerated Reader points.
Here is a list of our top 5 circulated titles

I really want to think that I promote good literature and thoughtful reading...but kids are kids.
