What are those french-cafe-looking newspaper holders called? You know, the kind that holds a newspaper in a stick that can then be hung on the rack?

They appear to be called "newspaper sticks". At least, using that term will find them online.

Damn you people are fast! (Funny thing; I went straight to a library reference, having *never* seen newspaper sticks/rods in French caf├ęs.)

Great question, and I'm very pleased to know this term!
