We also quit putting our newspapers on sticks, as it took a lot of time and also made them hard to read.  We got a large unit about 8 years ago that displays the most current issue and allows for stacking the older issues behind and below it until discarded.

My library quit doing that at least 10-12 years ago.  We found a plexaglass rack that mounted on the wall with a slot for around 15 newspapers.  Saves a lot of time not putting them on the sticks plus it's much easier for our clients to look at.

Hello!

Has anyone stopped using newspaper sticks?  If so, has it been a problem?  We currently keep the following on sticks -- most recent daily edition of the NYT, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia Inquirer and our local paper; most recent Sunday edition of the NYT, Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer and our local paper.

Thanks,

Ken
