Budget

Money is budgeted for supplies, A.V. Equipment, magazines, and books.  The library purchases twenty magazines. These are used for teaching supplements and student leisure reading. Books are purchased through Perma Bound and Jr. Library Guild. Jr. Library Guild books are highly reviewed and curriculum related.  It includes a History, Science and Social Studies book.  The rest of the books fit into a genre category such as “mystery, fantasy, etc.”  It is a set of twelve books that come monthly to the school. Perma Bound books have library binding, which handles the high use. The PTSA donates to the library to buy books. The last two years that PTSA money has been spent on Nonfiction curriculum content books.
