I agree that the school library experience, with the help of clever displays, can drive the enthusiasm of the users.

Great idea to share with our reading crew who are always in the Library.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, April 13, 2013 3:48 AM

Great idea! Have you ever done the toilet door to tell students about new books? You have a targeted audience that have nothing else to read :) I know it's slightly different but just thought I'd mention it.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, March 13, 2013 11:07 AM

I think I'll try this with books that cover the last grading period content. Research is the big push in our curriculum the last 6 weeks and there isn't enough of the library/librarian to go around. Perhaps some of the teachers will choose to use the books from the library in their classrooms instead of going to the computer labs. (There aren't enough of them to go around either.)
