Browsing the Shelves

Here are a couple of my favourite library book displays, made for people like me, who forget titles and authors and have to sing the whole alphabet song to remember whether Philips or Plath comes first.

Thanks to the Carlingwood branch of the Ottawa Public Library. (I took the photos sometime last fall. Not sure if the displays are still up there.)

  1. “You know… the author was on Oprah.”

  2. What a fun idea! I’ll have to do this at my library. I posted previously about one of the book displays I set up–it was for Valentine’s Day and all the books were hidden in red wrappings for patrons to go on a blind date with a book. 🙂

    • Yes, try it – it’s an eye-catcher, and I bet selection for the display is fairly easy.

      Your blind date display sounds fun – I wonder how many dates turned out well. (A higher or lower ratio than blind dates with humans? Hard to say. Perhaps some only lasted a few pages but others turned into committed readings.)

  3. Yes, people loved the blind dates idea! There must be something in the air because I posted about red (and green) books today, as well.
