Turn storytimes into circ times! June 12, 2007

Posted by sneaks in great ideas, J is for Juvenile, Picture Books.

Here’s a cute idea from North Point:

In an attempt to increase circulation after storytimes, we are offering handstamps as incentives to children who check out material. The Program team checked stats and saw a slight increase over the previous month. They are recommending that we try it again during June. Stats will be compared to June 06 to see if circ increased.

When a storytimer hands a book to a child at the end of storytime, it has enormous cachet. There’s a lot to do when setting up for storytime, but assembling a stack of books that relate the the theme of the storytime almost guarantees that those books are going to be checked out.
