The acquisitions staff is responsible for ordering the materials that you have selected for your library, and managing the funds used to pay for these materials. We also keep you informed of any changes to, or cancellations and/or delays of, your orders and will let you know if you have any money left to spend. If you ever have any questions/concerns about your orders and/or funds, please contact the Helpdesk.

Allocation Forms

Allocation forms are sent out to the librarians at the beginning of the school year to specify the budget allocation(s) for the following school year. The money used to purchase your selected material is portioned out in the form of Mill Levy funds, Boost Funds, and any additional funds your principal allocates for library materials.

The forms, signed by your principal even if no additional funds are allocated, are due back to the ETLS department by September 15, 2017.

If you receive any additional funds during the school year you must submit a supplemental funds allocation form.
