Here is a display idea that might work for for others.

We call it 'Teacher's Picks.' I asked the teachers and
staff to pick some of their favorite books for the
display. I made up bookmarks, that are mostly blank,
so teachers can write notes about the books on it.

To support this, I make "Indian Lake Reads" posters
that emulate the ALA posters --- featuring a picture
of the teacher/staff. I tried to personalize the
posters. Like the the guy that kayaks, I put a picture
of a kayaker behind his picture.

One teacher brought in a picture of her reading to her
kids. This went well with her books which were picture

This display has really caught on with the teachers,
they like to see what the other teachers are reading,
but kids are grabbing some books too.


What good is it
to be a wealth of information
if no one has a memory bank
