#Holdshelf: April 2013
If I run into you at the supermarket, I’ll probably take a look at what you have in your cart. I can’t help it – I’m just curious about the things people choose when the choice is completely theirs.
Same goes for the library hold shelf. Kids can pick whatever books they want, and I’m curious about the choices they make. Every month I team up with John Schumacher at Watch. Connect. Read. for some hold shelf gawking. I went with a video this month for our shelf:

And now it’s your turn. Thank you to everyone who submitted their hold shelf.
Look for more #holdshelf next month.
