Re: Hello-Silly question about how to put a newspaper on a wooden "newspaper stick" Herraghty, Maureen 14 Jan 2008 20:43 UTC

Hi, Leslie:

It's been a while since I've used them, but we never stapled at all.
Each section of the paper goes onto a different slat of the rod, with
the slat running down the fold, then the O-ring around the tip of the
entire rod holding all the sections on the rod. We always added a couple
of tape hinges for any single-width sheets that were in a given section,
so that those pages didn't fall out.

Hope that helps!

Subject: [SERIALST] Hello-Silly question about how to put a newspaper on
a woooden "newspaper stick"


I am a Periodicals Clerk in a Community College Library.  We have moved
into a new building and have been given a new "newspaper rack" for
displaying the days newspapers.  It is one of these units that has
"newspaper sticks" as the tool to use to hold the daily papers.  My unit
and sticks have no instruction manual and I have tried to figure out on
my own how to insert the papers into these dowel-things, but all I have
succeeded in doing is swearing a lot and breaking one of the sticks.
Does anyone know how to insert the paper into these sticks?  Do I staple
the paper on the seam of the paper or do I staple it in the left margin?

Any help or directions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you-

Leslie Palmer
