Here Comes #Holdshelf

Jan Holds 300x224 Here Comes #Holdshelf

If memory serves, it’s about that time when I tag team like Kid ‘n Play with Watch. Connect. Read. and we share pictures of our hold shelves. It’s a good way to find out which books are truly popular with kids.

It’s even better when you join in. So between now and Monday at 5:00 pm EST, take a picture of your hold shelf and email it to scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com. You can also tweet a picture by including @100scopenotes. On Tuesday, April 30, I’ll post a gallery with your submissions.

Give it a shot – Kid ‘n Play would be proud of you.

    I’m going to miss doing #Holdshelf! My new library is so big that I couldn’t get all of the holds into one photo (there’s stacks of shelving behind the circulation desk just for all the holds)!

    • Travis Jonker says:

      Ah, too bad – if you wanted to share just a section that would work too. I hope all is well at your new library!

    Am I the only one who got the reference to Kid ‘n Play?
