Dazzling Displays

It’s been a while since I shared any of our displays! This first one was created by a lovely teen volunteer for Black History Month.


Children were invited to write their dream on the stars and clouds and then we attached them to the display. Very creative!


I created our behind the desk display in Mid February. I needed a little bit of color! This doesn’t look that hard, but it took forever! I also should have cleaned up a bit before taking the picture. Oops.


This display replaced the Black History Month display in mid-March. Again, we needed a little bit of color and springy-ness in our lives. The original display I copied had the first duck reading a book, but I didn’t trust my duck drawing abilities so I found a duck print online and blew it up. Unfortunately, the duck is facing the wrong way for reading. The display doesn’t quite make sense now, but it’s still fun.


Read Like Rory Gilmore

Unless you live under a rock, or do not know any female between the ages of 15 and 45, you probably know that Netflix hosted a revival of the 2000s classic Gilmore Girls. The revival, officially called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, aired on Thanksgiving weekend and most people I know dedicated full days of their holiday weekend to binge watch the mini series.


I won’t go into details about the show (but holy cliffhanger!), but I will brag about my awesome way to incorporate the library into the Gilmore Girls hullabaloo.


Again, unless you live under a rock, you are aware that Rory Gilmore is a voracious reader. I found many a Rory Gilmore Reading challenge checklist online, so I printed one out, and looked for as many of the 300+ as I could find. I then printed out a fresh list and several pictures of Rory Gilmore reading and called it a display.


Surprisingly, a few of the books have gotten checked out! I was afraid none would circulate since they’re mostly school/homework type books, but so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised. For those curious, I’ve read 79 of 339. Bad Librarian.
