Thanks to Julie Belz from Ellsworth for this guest post!
After reading about a library in Colby, Wisconsin creating book bunches on the Growing WI Readers blog, we decided that it would be worth a try here in Ellsworth.

They are flying off the shelf! We started with 8 bunches and now we have 25! We have also made some for juvenile fiction and even a few for the adults. We pick about 5 fiction and 1 or 2 non-fiction books for each bunch. For the juvenile and adult - there are 2 fiction and 1 or 2 non-fiction books per bunch. People like them a lot because they are themed and saves them time from having to search for books in their interest area.
