Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Primary

An important aspect of the work of all primary school library coordinators is to carefully manage the library budget. Knowing the amount of cash that you require to be effective and what you might do with it, making your case and having a carefully planned out annual budget cycle is crucial to library success. This new guideline takes you through the important thought processes and gives information on what others receive. It provides planning templates, clear advice on budget preparation and suggests ways in which to manage what you are given. It also includes two useful case studies to help you.

Logged-in SLA members can download the School Library Budget Planner, a basic blank library budget spreadsheet designed to be easy for those inexperienced with spreadsheets.
