Library Displays: Do Yours Matter?
Earlier this month Jennifer LaGarde, aka Library Girl, wrote a timely blog post, Six Tips for Building Book Displays That Matter that made me take a second look at how I approach the book displays in the JCHS Library. Out of the six tips Jennifer features it is tip number 5, Build Displays That Generate Meaningful Data, that will present the greatest challenge. I'd love to see some examples of how others have achieved this type of data as related to displays.
After reading Jennifer's blog post I have since designed two new library displays. The first is seasonal and will be taken down after Thanksgiving Break. The title of this display is, What Are You Thankful For?. Students and teachers can choose to either write what they are thankful for and why on a construction paper leaf and place it on the display wall in the JCHS Library OR they can add to this display virtually via a Padlet.
