Benton High School | December 2010

OUR STATS FOR CIRCULATION . . . were down slightly for the month of December. It’s likely that this could be attributed to the early outs and days off for the holiday season. However, our influx of brand new books carried our print circulation. Our circulation stats are on course to reach 15,000 again this school year! We’ve seen a great turnover in the Top 10 Books category every single month this year! Titles have ranged from the uber-popular to the brand new emerging trends! We’re proud that our collection responds to a constant shift in interests and needs! Our most impressive statistic for this month was the total number of new books checked out. Out of our 878 book checkouts, over 307 of those were brand new books! This puts our total year-to-date new book circulation at 1073 of our total checkout, which is especially impressive considering our new books arrived in late October! Keep reading, Benton High School!!!
