Every month, Reader’s Advisory puts out different displays in the area surrounding our desk. For us, it’s a fun way to tie in the materials we love to the specific month or season! Anything that is on the cubes can be checked out, just like anything else in the library!
For the month of March, there are several different exciting displays to choose from.
“New Destinations,” located on the left book cube, is a display of fiction that will transport you to far off places and exotic locales.
“Dog Tales and Animal Adventures,” located on the center book cube, is a display of animal-oriented fiction. No matter what types of animals interest you, there is something here for everyone.
“Celebrate Female Artists: Women’s History Month,” located on the CD display cube, is music by female artists of all genres. Honor these women and their contributions to music by checking some albums out!
“Spotlight On…Dystopian Fiction,” located on our corner display, is a wide selection of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction. For the curious, dystopian literature generally takes a current social problem and extrapolates upon it. Police states, mass surveillance, oppression, mass poverty, and the like can all be hallmarks of dystopian fiction.
The fiction and nonfiction film walls have similar themes this month, focusing on women and women’s issues in honor of Women’s History Month. The fiction film wall is “Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History,” focusing on feature films about women throughout history that have made their mark on society. The nonfiction film wall is “We Are All Wonderwomen!” documentaries about issues facing women today and biographies of historical women.
