Previously, I had made a Staff Picks display where all the Youth Wing librarians posted their favorite middle grade titles. We had all picked several books that we put on display under little cartoon librarians I created In addition, I offered a little hand-out for the patrons which included all the staff favorites.
This time, we went a little more casual. Instead of several picks per librarian, everyone gets one spot. If you see your spot empty, give yourself a pat on the back for picking something that caught someone’s eye, and replace the title. In addition to middle grade titles, we included YA books as well.
And the rest of the staff (you can see that most of us are pretty into cats):
I laminated all these pieces, along with letters spelling out S-T-A-F-F P-I-C-K-S. Here’s an example of one letter I made:
Here’s all the letters together, though, decidedly very shiny:
And here’s the display in action:
I love our YA room, obviously, but it’s oddly shaped, with awkward little spots that we’re never quite sure what to do with. This display is a way to fill-up this unused little alcove we have.
If you made a similar display, what would be your middle grade or YA pick? What little add-ons would you want on your avatar?
