This is a quick display to put together and perfect for any time kids are free (summer, winter break, spring break, etc). Basically you just fill it with books that get kids up and doing things: science project books, cooking, crafts, sports & games books. You get the picture.
This is a super easy display to put together and you can blend fiction and non-fiction on the display.
I’m making mine an ongoing display where I feature a different Historical Girl each month. This wikia is helpful for American Girl information. I’m going chronologically through the girls.
I can’t take total credit for this idea. I found a picture online but I couldn’t find anything else about it. I took the idea and made it my own for a bulletin board in our library’s YA section. Now I’m sharing my selections of books with you!
I tried my best to match each faction from Divergent with books that embody the faction’s values or would be of interest to someone in that faction.
While sprucing up the children’s area, I decided to take down all of our non-fiction displays. They have been up forever and were fizzling out. I didn’t have a ton of time to put thought into them. I just knew I wanted something quick and easy. Something the pages could easily fill and something that I knew we would have books for.
The light bulb went off! Our Juvenile NF section is 3 double sided shelves. At the end of each shelf is a couple of display cubes where we put our displays so they face people coming into the children’s area. I decided to highlight various call numbers of popular children’s subjects. To make it even easier, the display will only feature books from the shelf the display is in front of.
In an effort to make the Teen space more about teens, I implemented some passive programs to get them comfortable in the space. My first big project was a March Madness display that was a showdown of YA books.
