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!

Build A Better World

Hi Guys,

Finally got a new display for you all. We’ve been short staffed lately and with school visits, I haven’t gotten a chance to make many new ones. But Summer Read and Learn is coming up so it was time to get one done.

Our theme this year is Build a Better World, so of course I went with a lego themed display!

Came out pretty good actually. Wasn’t so sure about the scale but not bad.

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!

READ

Hi Guys,

I needed to put up a new window display… can’t leave the holiday decorations up for too long right?

I didn’t have a lot of time to do anything elaborate this time around, so I figured you can’t go wrong with some inspirational words and bright colors.

Just a quick, easy window display for a new year!

Season Readings!

That’s all for now!

Winter Display

Hi Guys,

It’s new display time at the library!

I tend to change the four windows into the children’s room seasonally and occasionally for some special holiday displays. I figured it was time to get a winter display up there.

First thing I did was pick out some bookish puns– Reading in a winter wonderland… & Chill out with a good book!

 

Then I made some simple trees, using green triangles and then I laminated everything.

Finally, I made my snowflakes. I took fishing line and 20161128_112411threaded them through different sized cotton balls. You have to thread them through and then do a loop back through or else the cotton will move on the lines. I made twenty total, five for each window.

This is like the worst lit area of the library and it looks so much better in person then in these pictures. I really need to convince them to get some spot lights!

And that’s about it! Came out pretty good if I do say so myself.

Ejoy!
