Since I am over August, I made my September displays today at the library. Here’s what we got!
Top: “Try something new.” I just pulled a bunch of new books out from our new shelves and displayed them. I have already refilled this bad boy since putting it out yesterday. We have a GREAT new YA books area, but there is little room for facing out. But I put them face out on a display, and they disappear (which is awesome).
Middle: September is Hispanic Heritage Month, so I pulled out books featuring Latino/a and Hispanic characters or authors to display. There is a lot of backlist, which I like. Here’s a sample of what I pulled out:
My third display, on the bottom, is stories set in boarding schools as my “back to school” display. Some of my boarding school books are already in my new book display, so this let me pull out a lot of older titles, as well. I didn’t care if they were realistic or not, since magical boarding schools are fun, too.
Here’s a sampling of what I used:
Displays are one of my favorite things about librarianship. Seriously. It gets me excited about a new month.
