What criteria do you use in choosing new books to purchase for the media center?

I was curious how you determine which books to add to your library inventory each year. 


Since most of you in this group are school library media specialists, I thought you might be interested in the online Teaching Library which provides a variety of lesson plan ideas for teachers to use that correspond with books in the library.  Many of the activities suggest technology resources that reinforce ideas learned from reading a children's book.  The site includes book suggestions and lessons for grades 1-8.  As indicated on the website, the books are not free; however the activites are free.  Perhaps you may benefit from the suggestions this site makes for adding books to current library holdings.


I'd be interested to know what you think of this resource.
