Bundle books for library checkout

Bethesda Library in Bethesda, MD hit upon a brilliant idea.

They’ve created five-book bundles for checkout.

It’s an all-or-nothing proposition—even if you are interested in only one of the titles in a bundle, you’ve got to take them all. The idea is perhaps you are interested in more than one, but you’d never know unless you had no choice but take a closer look.

Even without knowing how effective these bundles are, I still encourage other libraries (public and school) to try it. Nothing to lose and plenty to gain.
