Giving Our Readers A Place To Share What They'd Like To See In Our Library!


Our favorite way to add new books to our library collection is through recommendations from our students.  We want to make sure every reader can find books they want to read and know they can request books, authors, series and genres we need in our library.  

As we kick off the new school year, this is the perfect time to make sure our students know how to do this when they come to the library, from their classroom or home, and even on-the-go through their own device. 

Here is how we set it up this year! 
First, we made a poster asking all students, What books would you like in our library? 

On the poster, we let them know they can make a book request in a few different ways. They can tell my library assistant, Mrs. Watson, or myself, write it on a book request form, or go to a that will take them to a Google Form.  This will give them options in how they want to share their requests. 

which I can print 6 on one page of paper. 
I created the Google Form header in Canva. You will find the template here.
And when they go to the or scan the QR code, it will take our students to the Google Form. 

We can't wait to hear what our students want to read this year!  

How do you get your students involved in developing your library collection, friends?
