Book Week 2019 – Reading is my Secret Power Display 2
The theme for Book Week 2019 is Reading Is My Secret Power. In conjunction with our circulation desk display and our Junior reading room display, I created this interactive display at the back of our Junior reading room.
Here it is before we added the student artwork.
Book Week 2019 – Reading is my Secret Power Display
The theme for Book Week 2019 is Reading Is My Secret Power and there are so many ways you could interpret this theme for display ideas. Traditionally, I decorate our circulation desk window (four, large tinted windows that sit behind out prominent circulation desk) with some interpretation of the CBCA artwork.
This year the CBCA Book Week 2019 artwork has been created by Bob Graham.
Here is my interpretation.
Book Week 2019 – Bookopolis Display
The theme for Book Week 2019 is Reading Is My Secret Power and I have had a lot of fun coming up with different displays to showcase this theme around the library. For our junior reading room, I went with Bookopolis: Home of those with secret powers. It takes the angle of superheroes, something that is eternally popular with our young readers, especially with the release of the Marvel Avengers: The Endgame movie earlier in the year. The display is bright and was very easy to put together.
