What book changed YOUR life? October 11, 2007

How interactive are your displays? Catonsville always seems to make a point of inviting customers to recommend materials to their fellow patrons.

this book changed my life display at Catonsville

On a recent visit we noticed a table near the front door with the sign pictured above. Patrons (and staff) are invited to pick a book from the shelves that holds particular meaning, slide a “This book changed my life” bookmark into it, perhaps writing a brief explanation of how you have been affected by the book, and leave it for others to enjoy. This thought-provoking display really invites inspection. It’s an interesting question and some of the answers are bound to be interesting too.

In the children’s section, leaf-shaped slips of yellow and orange construction paper were there for kids to write in their favorite book. The leaves were then taped to a lovely autumn tree painted on a large window.

Nice job, Catonsville, for displays that are both aesthetically and philosophically beautiful.
