Crafting Great Minds!!!

Hi Guys,

I have been dying to do a minecraft display for months but wasn’t sure quite how to do it. It seemed like the perfect subject to compliment our summer reading theme of Build a Better World but I had this picture in my mind and wasn’t sure I could pull it off.

Finally, I decided to just cut up a bunch of different sized squares, in complimentary colors and give it a whirl. I wasn’t super impressed with my minecraft dude but the rest came out great.

I can’t wait to see how the kids respond.

That’s all for now!

BLASTOFF with a good book!

Hi Guys,

Got a new bulletin board display for you all and I have to say, I love this one!

I knew I wanted to do something with a rocket-ship because I had this 3D image in my 20170427_152347mind. Basically, I folded a small lip on either side along the length of the rocket and I used the lip to staple onto the bulletin board, which gave it the bubble effect. Word to the wise, leave yourself a big lip to staple; mine was too small and I really struggled to maneuver the stapler. Then I created cones for my boosters and used tissue paper for my fire/smoke.

From there it was pretty simple. I had a gold 20170427_152401boarder, black background and some simple accucut stars. I used 3… 2… 1… BLASTOFF with a good book! as my quote but another one I’ve found that would work well is Reading lets you soar! or some version of the two.

This was such a fun display and pretty simple to put together.

That’s all for now!

Reading With My Peeps!

Got a fun, new, Spring-y display for you all:

Reading with my Peeps!

 

This was a pretty easy display to put together. And I don’t know about you guys but I was pretty impressed with my bunny.

February is Library Lovers’ Month

As some of you may know, February is library lovers’ month. A whole month to show your appreciation for libraries!

For a second year in a row we have created a display in our children’s room, so that the kids can write down what they love about libraries and then we display their answers for the rest of the month. <<< Totally stole that idea from grocery stores.

I didn’t have much time to get too creative this year so here is what I came up with:

Balloon hearts and all!

So make sure to show your appreciation for your library this month!

Happy Library Lovers’ Month!

Books Are Smashing!!!

Hey Guys!

Throughout the month of December and early January my library system is throwing a bunch of superhero, comic themed programs in the hopes of promoting our first Library Con, which is being held the end of January. We are putting up posters, doing displays and just trying to do a lot of fun tie-ins.

My library is doing a super hero party over winter break but I had some time the other day and thought I’d put up a new super hero themed bulletin board.

Please tell me you all get the Hulk reference!

This was super easy to do. I drew some bricks on my red background. Cut out some black cracks to make it look like my Hulk hand was punching through the wall and ta-da! The colors are a little funky, the light above the board went out as I was doing the display.

I was also irrationally happy to be able to use one of my new black boarders. I finally got a whole box of different color boarder rolls, so now I don’t have to create my own misshaped ones.

Let me know what you think!

That’s all for now!

Reading Makes You Bright!

Hey Guys,

Another fun little display for you all. 20161130_205721

This was a pretty simple one. I just cut out some squiggly lines and different color light bulbs. I have a TON of extra light bulbs. Totally over estimated the number I needed. Hopefully, I can use them somewhere else.

Finished it off with my text: Reading Makes You BRIGHT and called it a day!

Enjoy!

That’s all for now!
