November Displays

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 November, there are several different exciting displays to choose from.

“Honoring Our Veterans,” located on the left book cube, is fiction and movies about those who serve or have served in the armed forces.

“Love Books? Write One!,” located on the center book cube, is a display focusing on November as National Novel Writing Month.  It is a mix of books that started as NaNoWriMo projects and books about writing and authors.  If you’re interesting in National Novel Writing Month, you can get more information at http://nanowrimo.org/

“Class of…,” located on the CD display cube, is music from different eras.  Currently the classes of 1976, 1986, 1996, and 2006 are represented on each side of the cube.

“Reading, the Best Only Game in Town: Book Selections from This Year’s Book Lover’s Day,” located on our corner display, is books from 2016’s Book Lover’s Day, as well as previous years.  Check out the accompanying Billboard slideshow!

The fiction film wall contains “Favorite Movies About Games and Sports,” those films that take place in the world of sporting competitions.  The nonfiction film wall is “How to Excel at Playing Them,” which features documentaries, how-tos, and films about playing different sports and games.

Our Teen display this month is “A Pinch of This, a Dash of That,” a fun combination of genre reads.

Summer Reading Concludes!

Every couple of weeks during summer reading, Reader’s Advisory has been putting out different displays that go with the theme “Get in the Game: READ!” in the area surrounding our desk. Anything that is on the cubes can be checked out, just like anything else in the library!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Summer Reading program; it was a great success!

For the remainder of August, there are several different exciting displays to choose from.

“Marry, Date or Dump,” located on the left book cube, takes romance through its different stages in fiction.

“Ouija,” located on the center book cube, is a wide selection of paranormal fiction, ranging from horror to romance to fantasy.

“Dance Dance Revolution,” located on the CD display cube, is music that could be featured in the popular video game.  Get up and get moving with these tunes!

Our corner display is back to a rotating spotlight on different topics.  Right now we’re spotlighting the Olympics!  Take some fiction and films home that will make you feel like you’re at the Games.

The film walls feature “Uno,” foreign language films, and “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?,” nonfiction films featuring topics adults learned in school but may have forgotten.

Our new book display and staff suggestions display are back to their regular selves, and you can still find excellent reads on each one.

The Teen display to end up the summer is “The Game of Life,” which is a mixture of fiction and nonfiction titles dealing with real life issues facing young adults.

Summer Reading Displays

For the Summer Reading Program, Reader’s Advisory puts out different displays in our area that tie into the overarching summer theme.  For this summer’s theme, “Read to the Rhythm,” our book, music, and movie displays are all about music!  Anything that is on the cubes can be checked out, just like anything else in the library!

Right now, there are five different displays going.

The first book cube is a split between “Battle Cry of Freedom,” Civil War fiction inspired by the music of that period, specifically the soundtrack of Ken Burns’ The Civil War, and “The Rake’s Song,” Regency romances with rakes and rogues inspired by the album The Hazards of Love by The Decemberists.

The second book cube is a split between “Yesterday,” selections of historical fiction inspired by the classic Beatles tune, and “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,” western novels whose choice were inspired by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jenning’s cover of a seminal country song by Ed Bruce.

The music display is “Stayin’ Alive”, a rip roaring collection of 70s albums that will keep you dancing disco, inspired, of course, by the Bee Gees.

The movie display is “I Will Survive,” a selection of disaster movies inspired by Gloria Gaynor’s hit song.

The teen display is “To Infinity, and Beyond!” inspired by the movie Toy Story and its soundtrack, featuring science fiction.

Come in and check out these displays for yourself; you can always take something home!
