  • The Stuff on the Shelves Angie Manfredi, Los Alamos County Library System
  • Why the stuff on the shelves?
    • Our collections should reflect the communities we serve.
    • Engaging and popular collections can
      • boost our statistics
      • change our demographics
      • re-shape the way the public perceives us.
    • “ You have such cool stuff!!”
  • Prove it!
    • Teen circulation for 2007
      • 11,136 / 2,979
    • Teen circulation for 2009
      • 21,646 / 5,654
  • How did this happen?
    • Aggressive weeding.
    • Remove your judgment (and preferences!) from the process.
    • Draw a firm line between “children” and “teen” sections.
    • “ Let's just try it and see if we
    • get in trouble.”
    • ASK
