You're In LUCK – You're in the LIBRARY!


Cindy: My smiley face bulletin board with yellow books on display was so popular with our students, that I may just work my way through the rainbow…but in the meantime, I’m celebrating the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday and spring with GREEN book covers. The nice part about a color-themed display is that it allows for all genres and subjects!


Lynn: Cindy is the master of great bulletin boards – something I was always woefully inept at doing.  One of the things I learned from her was that simple is better and this is a great example of that.  This big smiley shamrock is so eye-catching.  This display works like a green magnet for the kids too and those green-cover books are disappearing fast for check-out.  Give this a try in your library.

    It’s official – I don’t need to worry about displays anymore. I’m just going to copy yours (-:) The happy yellow books was a hit, so I have high hopes for this one too! Thanks for posting these!

    I needed a quick and easy display and saw a pattern so for February we’ve had “Pink / Black” with all the covers in those colors. It’s been very popular!
