One of the most creative things that I get to do as the children’s librarian is to create the bulletin boards for each new season in the children’s area of the library. I always have fun preparing something new to put up and although sometimes they get the better of me, I usually learn something about design in the process.
These are just a few of the ideas that I’ve created in the past year or so. Right now, we have the Clifford/Scaredy Squirrel/Grumpy Bird board up trying to bring in Spring (although Judi says I am jinxing us into a longer winter that way). I always try to use color and shape or texture to draw in our readers, and most of the time, there is a 3D element involved.
What would you put on a bulletin board to get a child’s attention?
