Circulation of Curriculum Kits at the Webster Public Library

Recently, one of our WPL staff members did an analysis of the circulation of our curriculum kits (we call them “subject kits” here). I thought some of you who are considering creating kits of your own might be interested in the results. Click here for the analysis in PDF format. We put our first thirty kits into the collection two years ago, and we added the rest a bit at a time over the next year. The kits circulate for three weeks and are renewable. Overall, I’m really pleased with the way these are circulating. Even the kits with the lowest circulation are moving enough to make them worth the shelf space. I hope to be able to add even more kits to our mix over the next year.
