Syfy Display

Summer reading is coming to an end.  We’ve dug reading all summer and now it’s time to break out some new displays.  A back-to-school display will be going up over the circulation desk, a local quilter’s guild will be filling the entry display, and we needed to replace the historical fiction display in adults.  So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this:


It’s a Syfy display with ray guns shooting red and green yarn across the display and a sign with a spaceship on it that says “Experience a Flight of Fantasy.”  For some reason, patrons seem to love getting books out of displays that have a token of resistance to them.  For instance, when I created a display of western books and covered part of the display with cardboard barroom doors, the books behind the doors were always the ones checked out.  When I put caution tape up over a banned books display, we had a hard time keeping books in it.  We’ll see how they feel about death rays!
