October is a busy month in the library world. I am appropriately thankful in November that the pace has somewhat slowed. Nancy Price at Harmony Middle has helped me fill my little nerd notebook I keep in my purse with fun library ideas to get the kids engaged.
Here is a display I did recently at Blue Ridge Middle for Teen Read Week. I included YALSA'S Best Books for Teens list and pulled titles based on favorites submitted from the faculty and staff. Apparently, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Yearling, and and the Sweet Valley High series were very popular in the 70s-80s.
I went with the Read Like a Rock Star theme and hit Party City for some flashy decor. Those little CDs AOL used to send in the mail a long time ago came in handy. I TOLD my husband I would use them for something one day! : )
