Book Week 2018: Display Ideas

Book Week 2018 – Display Ideas

The theme for Book Week 2018 is Find Your Treasure.

The theme offers plenty of inspiration for displays: literary treasures, pirates, Treasure Island, under the sea and treasure hunts.

 

Official Artwork

The official artwork for Book Week 2018 has been released. Created by the talented Anna Walker, these gorgeous images are the perfect inspiration for a display.  As well as free email signatures and social media banners, a range of merchandise is available to purchase.

The beautiful setting of children and animals high up in the treetops is stunning. Our library plans to recreate this scene by turning the library circulation desk into a giant tree. Check out this post for more details.

Under the Sea Display

Looking for sunken treasure? Well, under the sea you go. I have always wanted to hang waves of blue fabric from the ceiling of the library, and this seems like the perfect opportunity. Coral made from pool noodles, seaweed made from plastic table cloths, and a range of sea creatures made by the students in the makerspace. And every library needs their own mermaid. Check out this under the sea party decor from Press Print Party.

Book Week 2018: Theme Announcement

Book Week 2018

The theme for Book Week 2018 has been announced – Find Your Treasure

Book Week 2018 will run from the 17 to the 24 of August 2018. The official artwork and merchandise will be created by author and illustrator Anna Walker, creator of Florette and Mr Huff.

When responding to and drawing inspiration from the theme, I’m sure I won’t be alone in thinking….. PIRATES!!!!!

But this theme offers so many other possible links. We certainly treasure books and reading. What else do we treasure? Authors. Illustrators. Readers. Libraries. Publishers. Librarians. Teachers.

Treasure can be found in many places. Beneath the sea, under the ground, in treasure hunts, archaeological digs, dragon hordes and memories. Mem Fox’s timeless story of Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge and the simple treasures of fond memories springs to mind.

Anna Walker’s stunning artwork for this year’s theme highlights the adventure one might encounter in the search for treasure, high in the treetops. The full range of merchandise can be found on the CBCA website.
