Making the library safe for all kinds of kids and teens is something that’s on my mind quite a bit. You may have realized by now that I’m super into signage and displays. I have no delusions that signs will create this magical library utopia, where homophobia, sexism, and racism take a massive hike, but it’s a start and hopefully it’s helping to facilitate an atmosphere of tolerance.
I saw this sign on Tumblr and thought I could recreate it. For the background, I used pages from old Time Life Science books that I snagged from Tim. I banged out the letters on our die-cut machine. The letters are glued to circles I made with a giant hole punch. Here’s the result. I’ve tacked it up behind the YA/Teen reference desk:
How do you promote tolerance at your library?
