Staff picks

At Downtown Library we have a large display stand featuring nonfiction titles selected by staff as favorites. It's one of my pet displays and I am always over there adjusting things for optimum aesthetics. Today I noticed:
  1. Someone who doesn't have a library card is clearly reading one of my staff picks (Holy Warriors: A Modern History of the Crusade by Jonathan Phillips), because it keeps disappearing from the shelf and then reappearing, still with "Emma Recommends" bookmark in it (I wonder if the reader is using it as a literal bookmark).
  2. Someone has added a note saying "Good recommendation" to the "Ann Recommends" bookmark in one of my colleague's picks.
  3. A book I put out 10 minutes ago is already gone! Yesssss!



  2. 10 mins might be a record for a book going off display!
