We stopped using sticks several years ago, opting for just placing the
newspapers on a table instead.  We keep the most recent 4 or 5 issues or
so of the nine most popular newspapers on a table.  It is easier and
faster to use just the table, and we have not noticed any marked
increase in copies disappearing from the library.

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.
