Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"At last! Hundreds of bulletin board ideas designed specifically for secondary school librarians are readily accessible in one volume. The inspiration comes from a web site devoted to bulletin boards for Grades 7-12. Basic practical tips suggest ways to liven up displays by using three-dimensional materials such as corrugated cardboard or wallpaper. Ideas focus on information students need to know as well as the promotion of reading and library services. Chapters divide the concepts into common topics such as seasons, reading promotion, and cultural diversity. Many times the suggestions come with a list of facts to choose from, adding versatility to the designs. The most exciting chapters promote the use of Big6Ô research skills, the responsible use of technology, and interactive bulletin boards to challenge high school students. One whole chapter is devoted to wonderful quotations about the value of literacy, libraries and books. The appendix contains a calendar listing all kinds of things to celebrate—from author's birthdays to the first patent given for chewing gum. This book has enough ideas to keep library bulletin boards fresh and stimulating for a long time. The table of contents contains enough detail to help locate a particular idea easily. For any secondary librarian who is weary of having to convert an idea from an elementary source to one appropriate for high school students, this book is a must-have. Highly recommended." - Library Media Connection
School Library Journal
A high school media specialist has compiled ideas submitted by working librarians from around the country as well as plenty of her own. The first chapter covers the basics, such as lettering, borders, and timesaving tips. The final chapter is a collection of relevant quotations that can be incorporated into the suggestions. In between are 11 chapters divided into topics such as "Cultural Diversity," "Seasons and Holidays," "Dewey Rules," "Research Rules," and "Technology." Suggested displays are easy to execute, especially with the assistance of library aides. The bonus is that the "Welcome Back to School" bulletin board won't be an embarrassment as December rolls around.-Laura Younkin, Ballard High School, Louisville, KY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
