Thank you to everyone who responded to this question.  I've posted the responses that I received below.  Many expressed the same problem as I am having.  I'm still exploring ideas if anyone else would like to weigh in with their thoughts.

Thanks again!
Mary Bangert


ORIGINAL QUESTION:  Do others still have professional book collections used by their teachers?  Mine is not too stale, yet it goes virtually untouched even though it is near the copier which most teachers visit on a regular basis.  I'd love to hear your ideas regarding the professional collection.  I don't know whether to promote it better, spend more on it, distribute it to departments, move it to a central district location (this may be inconvenient for teachers in some buildings?), get rid of it altogether, or ???


RESPONSES:

At two different schools where I've worked the Staff Development teacher took over the professional collection so they could recommend specific books to specific teachers as needed.  I believe that is working out well.


I have the same issue. I advertise it every year, I tried pulling some of the books out and putting them on display. I even tried relocating items near our laminator (I am in elementary) but nothing works. This year I am going to try and remind teachers again that the collection can be used for their end of year research/observation modes.  We'll see.


I have been weeding it aggressively and leaving the books for the teachers to pick over for their team or personal collections.  I'll leave the remaining items in our book room in hopes that more people will check them out. So many resources have gone digital and are shared that way that few people have had interest in this collection.   Good luck!


We have really just started one at one of my schools.  The principal advertises it to the teachers, and she hid a few coffee cards in the books so that teachers who used them would find them.     Our problem is that the teachers don't stop to check them out, even though they are in our library.


I had one at my previous school and it was never used. The Librarian who replaced me weeded it and got rid of most all of it. I'd start with distributing it to departments and then let them decide from there.


I am having the same issue. I am actually turning the small room that the professional books are in into a video production room as an extension of my Makerspace. I'm planning on leaving the books in there for now, but repurposing the space so it isn't wasted. If you get any good ideas for what to do with the books, please share!
