#Holdshelf Approaches Elsewhere
Some books you expect to see on the library hold shelf. You’ve got your Hunger Games, your Wimpy Kid, your Guinness – all understandable. But what I like to see are the hidden gems that don’t get a lot of attention that kids are lining up to read. Enter #holdshelf, then, to help spread the word.
This month, John Schumacher will be hosting the #holdshelf gallery at Watch. Connect. Read. So get those submissions flowing in his direction. Click here to visit Watch. Connect. Read. and learn how to take part. Don’t miss John’s behind-the-scenes video of how a hold happens.
Long story short – take a picture of your hold shelf, send it to Watch. Connect. Read., and John will post it for all to see on Friday, April 27.
How’s your hold shelf looking these days?
