Study of the Impact of Children's Book-based Blockbuster Movies on Library Circulation
The findings of this study show a correlation between the theatrical release of the book-based Blockbuster movie and the number of times the book is checked-out. The mean number of checkouts illustrate that more children check the book out immediately following the release of the book-based Blockbuster movie than they do before the movie’s theatrical release. As a result of data analysis, a trend illustrating the few months before the book-based Blockbuster movies theatrical release and immediately following the movie’s theatrical release there is a surge in the number of times the book is checked-out.
