Library Rules

I needed to get the rules up in the library. It took me forever to decide on rules, but after finding this on Pinterest:

library rules

I just needed to tweak it a bit. I didn't like that it looked like a bunch of jumbled letters. I LOVED the premise though! Sooo..I produced this:

Again, we have NO bulletin boards in the library. I wanted to make this last, so it was going to have to be laminated, and our laminator couldn't laminate one huge project, so we broke it up into sections. Again, big thanks to for the amazing fonts. I love how much character this has and I feel that the students might be a little more drawn to it. I do, however, notice that I was a little sideways with my strips, but overall I love the turn out!


Dive Into Reading display

So it's back to school time. I couldn't decide on what I wanted to display, apples, school buses, etc. etc. Soooo, I thought, since it was still so hot outside, why not go with a summer theme? The fact that I found 3 $4 beach chairs at Target also helped with this thought.

So of course, I turned to pinterest and found this:

I wanted to take mine a step further, and since I don't have an actual bulletin board in my library, we went with this:

The die-cut letters we have are just too boring for me. I feel like they are just overused because they are easy, so that is why we went to to find a font for our dispaly! Unfortunately we are out of color ink right now, so we just printed in black and white and colored.

Yay! (This was our first project together, and I must say, I am very much looking forward to the rest of the year!)


So I know I haven't kept up with this blog at all, but now that I have a job as a school librarian I think I will post my pictures here for both reference for me, and ideas for others! Enjoy!
