Fight evil. Read books. July 6, 2007

Posted by sneaks in display topics, J fiction, J is for Juvenile, summer.

It’s a question we face every time… how do we capitalize on the new Harry Potter book – and movie! – when all our copies are checked out?

Use BCPL’s After Harry Potter booklist to select similar books for a big fantasy display. Multnomah County’s “If you liked Harry Potter, try…” list is long and up-to-date. Click on this link, as the link from BCPL’s Harry Potter page is broken. Similar lists are online from other library systems. Waterboro Public Library has a very comprehensive one, as does Boston Public Library, Los Angeles Public Library, and Christchurch City Libraries (in New Zealand!).

Try to put this display where adults are likely to see it too – we know plenty of grownups who read Diane Wynne Jones and Philip Pullman (not to mention J.K. Rowling) purely for pleasure!
