As a child, I had subscriptions to Ranger Rick and Cricket, both of which I enjoyed immensely. I don’t recall a children’s periodical collection at my local library when I was growing up. Lately, my son and I have been checking out the periodicals at our local branch library. They have a nice collection which is in great shape. In fact, several magazines from 2005 look brand new. While American Girl never seems to be on the shelf, other gems are apparently overlooked.
So, I want to ask you a few questions. What periodicals do you make available for your patrons? Why? Is it a collection you promote? If so, how do you promote it?
