#Holdshelf: October 2013
Let’s take a peek behind the curtain, shall we?
Each month of the school year John Schumacher and I post pictures of the hold shelves at our school libraries and encourage one and all to participate. It’s a good way to see the books kids are excited about. For those that graciously shared your shelves this month – we salute you.
Here’s John’s most recent hold shelf:
John also shared a hold shelf Vine video from a few days earlier:
I decided to take a trip around my school district this month with the Follett Destiny app and share the most popular books at all four of our elementary schools.
