Buchanan School - Winnipeg, Manitoba

Buchanan School

Adopted by: Indigo Kenaston Common  

Buchanan suffers from an aging collection because of lower enrollment, increased book prices, and static budget allocations. Losses of titles, generally newer, affect the age of the collection. There are just over 9500 items in the library, the average publication year for the collection is 1996 with only 4% published after 2016.

Fiction and graphic novels are the most popular types of books, but they make up the smallest part of the collection. It would benefit students to have a larger and more diverse collection. This money would help buy quality titles with stronger binding that costs more but lasts longer. With a small budget it can be difficult to justify the higher cost of binding when it means even less titles added to the collection.

The Buchanan population includes a significant portion of low-income families that don't have disposable income for reading materials; they depend on the school to provide. This population is also less likely to pay fines for damaged or lost materials, making it a challenge to replace books while also increasing the collection.
