For the past decade, much attention has been given to the acquistion of relevant and culturally responsive classroom library materials. These materials can't shine, however, if they are buried under outdated covers and torn magazines. Kristin, a former school librarian who has purged dozens of classroom libraries, will walk you through her methods for deciding what to keep, what to store, what to donate, and what to TRASH!
