Benton High School | March 2011

OUR STATS FOR CIRCULATION . . . held steady for the month of February despite the many snow days. Our new books from the fall 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! This month, we saw a number of old favorites enter the list from the previous Gateway Reader’s Award Nominees. We’ve had some very steady circulation statistics for both new books and the existing collection! Keep showing us your book love, Benton High School!!! --Mrs. Corey and Mrs. Halter
