Yup, I'll make handouts as well as my PowerPoint, and submit both to be posted to the conference website. I would be happy to email anyone who emails me after the conference a copy of everything as well.

Thanks for your interest, my colleagues!

If Heather creates a handout, it will be posted on the UELMA website after the conference. We have done that for conferences in the past.

 This would be very helpful to all of us.  I am unable to attend UELMA, so is there a way for this information to be shared other than attendance?

The first step in the weeding process is to check the district policy manual  to see if there's a district policy on weeding. At one time, district library media supervisors focused on writing school library policy, and that work should still be on the  books. Following policy is a protection for everybody. If there is no district policy, shouldn't establishing one precede actual weeding? 

 
It might be helpful if the UELMA session were to offer guidance on writing weeding policy, at the same time focusing on policy writing in general. Marian Karpisek's book on  school library policy writing remains the standard.

Friends, my proposal to present about weeding at UELMA was accepted. Are there any particular areas in addition to the "what do you do with weeded materials" that I ought to cover? 

 
Thank you, looking forward to hearing your thoughts

We have done different things with our books after weeding.  The former librarian liked to put them on a cart the last week of school as a giveaway.  Others have been taken to D.I., recycled, or given to students that need books.  

 
This year, I was just approached by a new non-profit here in Enoch (or at least they should be getting their non-profit status this month) called Pets Furever which is a local animal rescue/foster program working with our local animal shelters.  I don't  know much about them as I was just introduced to them recently.  They would like to start a summer reading program where children can read books to dogs.  I am thinking of donating my old weeded books to them.

I am allowed to hold a book sale when we have Back to School Night in August and I sell weeded books, donations that are not needed etc. for anywhere from $.25-$5.

Hi All!   
I am getting ready to do some more weeding and wondered what you do with the books once you pull them from your shelves.   I know there used to be a company that sent them to third world countries, but they’ve since gone out of business.  If you know of any other companies like that or have any great ideas on what to do with old books I’d love to hear them!  
Thanks so much and have a fabulous day!!
