  3. Our holds went up for Soul Surfer. I got a little sneaky: This past week there was a Wall Street Journal article on her balance workout, so I displayed it with the call number for the book. The kids get a lesson in where the biographies are located in our library. Then, because they don't find it on the shelf (it's out) they learn about placing a hold request.
