In our districts the librarians do an End of Year report (EOY). We have a document of select Texas Library Association Standards. We rate our libraries based on these standards and share them with our principals.
The job of a librarian is such a misunderstood job. We are so much more than a book distribution center. Doing an EOY helps the librarian see where the library need to improvement. Plus it helps our principal see what we are all about. It can also be a document that we can use to show our principals why we are asking for library related services, money, items, etc.
We have also been encouraged by our lead librarians to do an infographic. As informative as the EOY is, it's kind of dry and even a bit limited.
An infograph can really showcase all the awesome extras we do that can't be measured in a standard. I looked at the infographic I did last year and realized that I basically regurgitated the same info from the EOY and added a few other things to showcase. This year I decided I didn't want to repeat the same information from the EOY on my infograph. I really wanted to showcase some of the awesome things that happened in our library this year. The only information I did include that was the same was the amount of books checked out this year. In my infographic I did a graph so the information is presented differently.
Here's my infographic (I don't know how to make it smaller to fit the space. If you know how, tell me!):
