Okay, here is my delima. I teach k-5, and have a few students who frequent the library every morning to return and check out a new book. Sounds great right? Not so, the problem comes in when I know that they are not actually reading the books, but using the library as an excuse to get out of work. Not only does this create more traffic that I really don't need (up to 60 kids are in the library in the morning at one time, no assistant), but it also creates a large overflow of books that I have to then reshelf. I have spoken to the students about making good book choices so that they do not get a book that is too easy/too hard and will take them 3 or so days to read. We have talked about testing on 2 books then coming back to the library. I have even had to "ban" them from the library for 2 or 3 days, so that they do not come back. Does anyone else have this problem? I want my library to be a welcoming, inviting place, but the extra work it puts on me is becoming overwhelming. I'm talking 200, 300 EXTRA books to process. The teachers then seem to get angry when I send them back empty handed. It seems sometimes they just want to weed down their own homeroom in the mornings, by letting them come every morning. Help! I guess I just want to hear that this is not an isolated issue, but something everyone deals with.....maybe?
