Library Renovation 101:

Stage 1-take an existing nonfunctional ‘library’ (that is really just a book room)- remove every book from the shelves, evaluate its condition (falling apart?), its age (copyright 1976!) and usefulness (picture books in a high school library?). Make a discard/get rid of pile and be firm! clean books, sort into piles according to subject or type of book, then shelve in classification order.

Phase 2- add spine labels and circulation cards

Phase 3- develop a search database using the free open source software KOHA

CLA Girls is through stage 2, CLA Boys and Ekt Primary done with stage 1, EKT HS is starting stage 1 - very exciting creating interactive and useful libraries!
