Library Bill of Rights “ books and other library resources should be provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community the library services.”
“ The library media program must provide access to all the information and instruction that students and others need for active, authentic, information-based learning. The school library media program requires a  budget that supports the continuous collection of information in all formats  and that provides the instructional infrastructure  that will help students learn to use that information in creative, meaningful ways. ”  Information Power   (1998)
Information Power Program Administration Goals “ Administer the budget according to sound accounting procedures to meet all informational and instructional needs and report all expenses as required by local policies.” (Goal Two) “ Investigate and use financial methods and resources to meet the information needs of the learning community, including centralized processing, purchase discounts, partnerships with local organizations, and collaborative grant writing for special purchases and programs.”(Goal Four)

Conclusion ,[object Object],[object Object]
“ As a result of the continuing budget squeeze, acquisition librarians continued to focus on approval plans, firm orders and discounts to trim costs.”(Dunham)
“ Librarians, don’t underestimate the extent of your power over school and/or school district book purchases, whether you or someone else places orders.  Be proactive. The authenticity of a child’s learning experience is a stake.  Educators need to learn about good books, and with your expertise, you’re the best person to make it happen.” (St. Lifer)
