childrenslibrary/librarycomputersforchildren.aspx Weaknesses
-Budgetary constraints means less staff hours
Large and young student population:
-The library serves 340 students K-6th grade. Materials and furniture need continual repair due to mishandling and damage Opportunities
New library clerk: Hired recently to bring a new vision and innovation to the school library
Designing a school library webpage: It is a possibility to have a school library website that will provide databases, educational website links, book reviews, and library newsletters

Lack of funding:
-California education system and subsequently public school libraries are getting less monies.
-Tipping funds from Puente Hills landfill ends next year. That will decrease instructional support staff.
Getting funding:
-On already tapped resources in school districts, it is hard to muster up support for school libraries. Vendors
-Half Books, Friends of the Library book fair, Scholastic, and Amazon
-8 other public elementary schools in Whittier City School District, all competing for No Child Left Behind funding
-Many private schools Technological Developments
-iPads in classrooms for students in 4th thru 6th grade
-Alexandria library management software
Legislative and Regulatory Developments
-Measure Z
