SRC Displays June 12, 2007

Posted by sneaks in BCPL best practices, display topics, Summer Reading Club 2007.

Quoted from each branch manager’s monthly reports, here’s how our libraries are looking for Summer Reading Club!

Essex: As you enter the library you see the lighted arch with small cars traveling in rows. Dangling from the center of the arch is a working traffic light and on the SRC table a ‘smiling car’ tablecloth. The ceiling is arrayed with numerous hanging vehicles and the window is painted with a colorful three panel window of Sneaks and friends. The Essex Staff is serious about Summer Reading Club decorating.

Hereford: Doris Somers and Jeanne Andrews have taken the lead with SRC planning and decorating, with beautiful results. Our customers can come to HE and look around to see an adventurous Sneaks driving to DC, New York, the beach, and other great destinations.

Landsdowne: While Lorrie Jackson was working on finishing her SRC painting in our gorgeous area way, she looked through the window and saw a different kind of moon in the form of a naked derriere  belonging to a young patron unhappy at being asked to leave for the day.

Parkville: Spotted through the window with a sleeping kid in the back of the Subaru: a cool signpost noting direction and mileage to several exciting destinations that you can visit virtually in books!

Reisterstown: Put your seatbelts on – Sneaks is on the move. The library has been transformed into a travelogue by our excellent SRC team. What a wonderful team! For example, the lobby is the West Coast complete with waves, sun, vineyard, and a “bathing beauty” sunning herself on the top of the hold shelf.

White Marsh:  Our information desk is decorated in a cool road sign cloth Mary Power picked up at a crafts store. Table displays are covered with maps.

… and not to be overlooked just because it’s not open to the public:

Diana Harrison decorated the hallway in front of Cataloging to reflect the SRP roadtrip theme
