Summer Read & Learn

It’s that time of year, where schools start wrapping up their classes and close their doors for three glorious months. For the library, our busiest time of the year is about to start!

Today, is the first day of Summer Reading at my library. Our doors will open and we will be flooded with kids and caregivers looking to sign up and get started on all the fun things the library has to offer. Time to gear up and get ready for questions, troubleshooting, and lots and lots of readers advisory!!!

To help spruce up the children’s room, I created a few signs and displays to go along with the “Libraries Rock!” theme.

Window displays, like from my last display post.

Other window displays that are a bit more interactive.

We plan on letting the kids write their names on paper music notes and adding them to our scales. Hopefully, they will be able to add a sticker to their note as they progress through the program.

Oh and I can’t forget my bulletin board! A little homage to the other meaning to “rock.”

I also made a quick sign to show patrons where they can access our computers in order to sign up for summer reading, while they are at the library.

And finally, I added a little flare to our program flyers. Who doesn’t love a border of gold stars!20180608_165531

Pair all this with awesome book lists, really great incentives and raffles and some awesome summer programming—the library is going to be the place to be this summer!

Let’s keep those brains sharp this summer and continue to read and learn, all while having fun!

What are you doing to get ready for summer reading?

That’s all for now!

Libraries Rock!

Hey Guys,

I finally got my summer reading display up and it came out better then I’d hoped! The theme for summer read and learn this year is “Libraries Rock!” Of course I had to do a music themed window display!

I tried to go a little retro with my music, creating an electric guitar, a boom box and some vinyl records.

My drums have the theme verbiage and lots of fun music notes. Everything was crafted, freehand using construction paper and markers. I laminated everything to make it last.

I am super proud of my piano. I knew I wanted my piano to look like it was sort of moving, so I cut out the keys and attached them, using tape, to fishing line. That was each section of keys could bend.

I like this theme a lot and hopefully the display will last the whole summer!

That’s all for now!
