#Holdshelf: May 2017
Been a little while since I shared the books on hold at my K-4 school library. How about we have a look and discuss?

Some notes about a couple of the books:
Who Was Harry Houdini?
Kids at my school really like the Who Was? series, which has been fun to see, as the biography section doesn’t get as much traffic as other areas of the library.
Are You Ready to Play Outside?
While the E&P books are maybe the most popular series in our library, it’s rare to see one on the holdshelf. We have so many of them that kids usually just pick a different one from the series if the one they’re looking for is out
Tales of Beedle the Bard
It made a big splash when it arrived in 2008 (and JK Rowling’s handwritten edition just went for a nice sum). You know where it continues to make a slash? Our library.
A little local flavor! Books about our state university football teams were some the most requested until we added them to our collection.
Do you have these in your library yet? You should add them if you don’t – few series in our library circulate more.
