The Eight Most Requested Books during the First Week of School

On Wednesday morning, two kids raced to computers to place a hold on Squish: A Brave New Pond. "Yay! I'm the first person to put it on hold," shouted an excited fourth grader. Kids dropped by the library during the first week of school to place holds on forthcoming titles. Where did they learn about the books? In bathrooms, while getting a drink at the water fountain, and by word of mouth. Advertising around the school works!

  1. Are these listed in your catalog already? Do students put holds on them?

  2. Definitely one of my goals this year but I am so not sure how you keep up like this along with the teaching, tech, etc. You have inspired me to rethink the use of signs and posters to advertise books around the school. Thanks!
