"The Library is a Theme Park For the Mind"
That was the motto that was used already when I took over my new library position. 
I agree, and want to take it even further. I would like to make our library feel 
that you are entering another place. Think about when you visit an amusement park 
like Disneyland. When you walk in, you forget about the rest of the world. I want 
that effect for the library. I would like my students (grades 6-12) to feel that 
they are entering another place, and somehow forget about the worries that school 
may cause.
Now, I need to know how to do it. Disneyland does it with the "berm," a row of 
trees making the outside world impossible to see. What decorations, or ideas do you 
have to help me accomplish my idea? I would like to create different "lands" inside 
the library. Any ideas? I have purchased the new "Movie Posters" from Demco, which 
will give a different feel to an area.
Please pour out your creative ideas.
Thanks in advance,
