June is Pride Month so the Librariham made this Prideful Display:
Also, today is GSA!!! GSA is a Gender and Sexuality Alliance Group for everyone who identifies as an ally. So stop by and have some snacks:
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and here is the library’s teen display for raising mental health awareness:
The top two shelves are YA Non-Fiction on topics such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders, etc. The bottom shelf are fiction titles that deal with mental health issues. To the right of the sign there are bookmarks with “Tough Topics” call numbers. If you are a librarian viewing my blog click on the image to steal/borrow for your library- but check your call numbers to make sure they match. I stole and remade this from another library and some of our call numbers were slightly different.
Lastly, you may have noticed, whenever I get a chance I put Mosquitoland by David Arnold on display. Check it out if you’re looking for something “different” to read. I liked it.
That is all!
I think I’ve become a troll.
There’s a huge glare because it is still day-time here at the library but all the books either have May or April in the title or author’s name.
I’ve waited just about under a year to use this idea.
School Summer Reading is here… for now.
The books are going fast so stop by to grab one or put a copy on hold with our online catalog here (you will need your up to date library card): http://goco.sirsi.net/uhtbin/cgisirsi/x/x/0/49?user_id=monroeweb
You can also check out our ebook & eaudio collection for a copy of some of the Summer Reading books as well, learn more about that by clicking: here
Okay… so I got a little lazy and used the same display for two months in a row. This is not entirely my fault because cutting out these little construction paper things took a while and I was NOT wasting them.
And thus I bring you “Reading On Another Level”:
There’s a deeper theme that probably only I noticed when I put this together:
First row: Level Up with the various levels are a series, in order.
Second row: Level Up your mind has all non-fiction books. The point systems doesn’t mean anything.
Third row: Bonus Round is just covers I found interesting or books I wanted to read or have read. It’s just random.
Feel free to steal or tweak. Just tag me if you do!
With little Post-it notes telling you where the book takes place (with my [terrible] handwriting):
Blatantly <s>stolen</s> borrowed from: http://www.epicreads.com/blog/the-united-states-of-ya/
