Hold Shelf Surprise! http://kpla.org/hold-shelf-surprise/ Mon, 26 Jan 2015 16:51:24 +0000 http://kpla.org/hold-shelf-surprise/ Continue reading ]]> My name is Lisa Maiden and I work at the Daviess County Public Library in Owensboro, Kentucky. The Hold Shelf surprise is a program where patrons register (either on paper or through our website) to have surprise holds placed on the shelf for them once a month. The patrons indicate what types of books they like to read in both fiction and nonfiction and books are pulled that relate to their interests. They then have comment cards they can fill out to let me know if the books they are receiving are books they enjoy or not. I currently have 111 patrons registered for this service with more joining each week. For further contact, please email me at lmaiden@dcplibrary.org.
