Funds need to be allocated for the purchase of materials that will meet the community needs. With this in mind, our current demographic data requires that District 105 maintain a sizable collection of materials for youth, adolescent, and young adult students. The library media specialists need to work closely with the building principals to determine the percentage of funds that will go towards youth, young adult, nonfiction, fiction, professional, and reference materials. The library media specialist will determine the current state of the collection in terms of percent of materials for each category of materials and will determine the ideal distribution of fund allocation to meet curricular needs.
