Does the perfect school library planner exist? Yes it does, and this is it! I created this planner specifically for school library media specialists. This planner has everything you need (and many things you didn’t even realize you needed) to keep you organized all year long. Most of the pages are editable so you can customize it to suit your needs. Plus you receive free updates for life! Currently it is updated through the 2024-2025 school year. MAJOR UPDATE on May 20, 2020.
Note on the editable pages: only the text can be changed. The images cannot be changed due to copyright restrictions. You must have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer to use the editable pages.
PLEASE download the preview. The preview is very detailed and shows most of the pages.
