Thank you Suzie Roth for presenting on "Bring on the Books"

Quoted from A.J. Sheridan's Introduction and and Edited by Lisa DeLeo 
Suzie Roth began her 20 year professional career as a K12 librarian and then transitioned into university libraries. She spent nearly 15 years at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University as a Research & Instruction Librarian and has been in her current position as the Yavapai County School Librarian since 2020.
As the County School Librarian, Suzie works with all K12 school library staff providing customized support.  It is different in each school, but often includes teaching about day-to-day library operations, collection analysis and collection development among other things.
She has begun to bring new books into the aged school collections entitled:  “Bring on the Books” ( It is a unique way for our communities to contribute to school library collections.   

Just the facts: 

  • The average publication date of items in Yavapai County school library collections is 1993.
  • School collections are grossly outdated.
  • For some kids their school library is the only place they have an opportunity to check out books.
  • Average checkouts of popular books are 300+ and need replaced. 
  • School libraries have little to no budget for books or other materials.

Select a school. Order a book.


All orders will be sent to the Yavapai County Free Library District office for processing and then delivered to the school. Part of the processing includes a book plate with the donor's name provided on your gift receipt that comes with the books.

Thank you for your support!! 

Best regards,
Suzie Roth, MLS
Yavapai County School Librarian
