    "It’s there so people can choose to read it. Nobody has to read something that’s in a library. Nobody has to buy something that’s in a bookstore. But you have choice, and that’s what this is all about. And if the book isn’t there, you don’t have the opportunity to choose to read it."

    Our school has a ‘runner’ each day—a student taken off timetable to deliver messages and soforth for the school. Every student does it once, for a single morning or afternoon, and when they’re not taking messages they do homework, or read. 

    We were getting lots of students sent across the (quite large) campus to fetch a reading books for their runner duty, so I got together this box of books and an interactive display where they can leave a book review on a post-it, and set it all up at the runner’s desk at reception. The books are all popular or classic titles we had a spare copy of in the library, so I took them out of our collection and labelled them specifically as ‘Runner’s Reads’.

    Every time I popped up to reception or the offices, I’d see more post-it reviews! This is also the part of the school that visitors see first, so it’s a great opportunity for us to demonstrate that this is a reading school, and to show the active role the library has in the school community.
