We all know budgets are tight. Planning and then managing the finances of the primary school library, whether large or small, is an essential job for all primary school library coordinators. Planning ahead, knowing and outlining the budget that you need to be effective and having a clear understanding of the library’s annual budget cycle are all important aspects of budget success. Here is our revised and updated Guideline that includes clear advice and useful templates to help you through this important process. It also includes two new case studies on this important aspect of work.
