#HoldShelf is Coming!
I maintain the library hold shelf is one of the best ways to know what kids are actually lining up to read. So let’s share.
@MrSchuReads and I are joining forces to make On Hold @ the Library a participatory monthly event.
Here’s how it works:
Before Tuesday, March 27th, locate the hold shelf in your library.
Take picture. Share it by any of these three methods:
- Post to your blog and let me know in the comments.
- Email the photo to me at scopenotes at gmail dot com.
- Tweet the photo using the hashtag #holdshelf.
…or you can earn 1,000 bonus points* if you try all three.
*Bonus points hold no cash value or any other kind of value. Sorry about that.
On Tuesday, March 27, I’ll post a picture of my hold shelf, and include any and all submissions in the post.
I’ll be hosting this month, and Watch. Connect. Read. will have honors at the end of April.
Let’s see what ya got.
