Add Pizzazz to Your Library

A bit of imagination and a few craft supplies can go a long way!

Many of my libraries have older furniture, including boring return bins.  Even with orientation lessons and signage, students often miss the return box.  Create a graphic to catch their eyes and make returning books a bit more fun.

Make signs big and bright for little ones who are still learning how the library works

Book carts are a great visual in the library.  If yours is looking a bit dull or worn out, try some fresh paint. You can even get creative with the side panels.
