Shanna Leonard, Media Coordinator from Tyro Elementary, has done a fantastic job with book displays in her library. The theme for her library is "Camp Tyro" complete with campsite and tent. Shanna has some great ideas for creating book displays.
Hello Media Friends! On Tuesday, September 8th, Sedley visited our Media Center at Tyro Elementary. However, I missed visiting with her due to proctoring the BOG for 3rd grade. She later emailed me this NEAT flipagram and posted it on the DCS Facebook page. After thanking Sedley for the flipagram, she recommended that I post a blog entry on book displays. I eagerly agreed and was thankful for a blog idea.
See the flipagram link below. And thanks again Sedley!!! http://flipagram.com/f/bsp1V9B3j3
One of the many hats that we wear as a School Librarian is to get students EXCITED about reading and to promote the LOVE of reading. I have found that book displays have sparked the interest of reading with our students. I enjoy creating book displays based on Holidays, themes, authors, and genres.

I love using chalkboards as book display titles. You can find these neat chalkboards at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, and Walmart. Big chunky letters also make catchy and fun display titles. Mercer Mayer Author Book Display
Initially, I thought all book displays had to be on tables, but as you see…… book displays can be placed anywhere……. on tables, book shelves, rolling carts, floor, etc. Genre Book Display

Our Fifth grade teaching team informed me that they were planning a Newbery Award project where students would be reading Newbery Award books. So I am preparing a Newbery Award book display to promote this project. Other book displays that I have arranged include:
Displaying books in an appealing arrangement is motivating and informative for students!
