Looking back at 2011-2012

We are starting to come to the end of our third year here at Caleb's Creek. Time has really gone by quickly! As we are passing out yearbooks and finishing off testing, I thought it might be fun to look back at some statistics from the year!

In the past year, we have:

Taught approximately 715 classes (fixed and flexible schedule)

Assisted approximately 770 classes that came just for check-out

Attended 1 state library conference

Held 2 book fairs

Created 30 Livebinders

Checked out 33,753 books

Placed 863 holds on books for students (and delivered that many LibraryGrams!)

And Much Much More.

Speaking of checkouts, let's look at the top titles for check-out this year. Here are the Top Ten Everybody, Fiction, Non Fiction, and Overall titles for the past year. I thought it was interesting that the graphic novel series Bone and Wimpy Kid almost completely took the Top 10 Overall. (Bone is a graphic novel so it has GL for Graphic Literature in the call number which is why it didn't show up in the Fiction Top Ten even though it is inter-shelved with it.)

  1. Hi there ... I am a fellow elementary school librarian blogger! I discovered your blog on The Top 50 School Library Blog list. When I stopped by, I was excited to see your list of Top Circulating Books. I am actually running a "Block Party" at my blog. It is a place for librarians to link up and promote their blog and top ten! I would love it if you wanted to join :)

  2. Hi Sonya! Thanks for stopping by! I tried to check out your blog, but it is blogged by our district web filter for some reason, so I will check it out at home later. I would love to be part of the block party.
