I used to check out magazines (middle school).  Like you, I ended up
with some never returned, although not a huge number.  The biggest
problem was that they would come back looking like they'd been
through World War III.  Hey, they just aren't designed for heavy
use.  Another problem was that the most popular magazines would all
be checked out.  So when a kid wanted to come in and read Teen Beat,
let's say, they'd all be gone.  Now I only circulate magazines they
need for reports, such as Time, Newsweek, etc.  This has worked out
very well.  If there's something in a popular magazine that a
student really wants, he usually uses the copy machine.  Stolen
magazines have not been a big problem.
