My Library Displays (Rachel Moani)

Ok, I'm splitting up Displays and Programs. "My Programs - Kids" and "My Programs - Teens" are the new boards for programs I'm doing at my library.

Trying a new self sign up table for Summer Reading 2014 at the library. We'll see how this goes.

Ok, last one. Fizz Boom Read! Library Book Display

View from my desk lately. It's rainbows and stickers and explosions 24/7 here at the Lacey Library.

FIZZ BOOM READ Summer Reading 2014 Library Display

OMG! It's HERE! Summer Reading! FIZZ BOOM READ

Maya Angelou book shelf display Lacey Timberland library, another photo.

Maya Angelou, 1928-2014. Amazing writer, beautiful woman, you'll be missed. Memorial Book Display at the Lacey Timberland Library. "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

A sweet little city growing out of the Fairy Tale shelves.

It's coming... Summer Reading 2014 FIZZ, BOOM, READ! Also, I'm trying out this tumblr thing. Show me some social media love? rachelmoani.tumbl...

    I can't wait to see what you've made for Summer Reading this year!

Fairy Tale Library Book Display. Also, for realsies, come be my boss, all you awesome children's librarians. Senior Youth Services Librarian position now open at the Lacey branch of the Timberland Regional Library

Paper Bag Puppets! Tissue paper and paper scraps. Also. You guys, if you live in Washington State or want to live in Washington State and are a cool person and librarian, you should come be my boss.

Reading Castle... before. Every time a kid comes to the library they can come get a sticker to put on the castle. I can't wait to see what it looks like in 6 months. Castle inspired by Cardboard Dad. Stickers inspired by an installation for kids by the queen of the polka dot, Yayoi Kusama.

Good Books to Read and Sing Out Loud! for our family read aloud month, a focus on our beginning readers.

    When are you going to get a new blog Rachel??? I loved your page and was a regular visitor... You are awesome!!

Castles and Balloons and Reading quotes. Perfect project for a Children's Library Area on a slow Friday afternoon ;)

  • Kelly Mommadoo

    I miss your blog oh so much.

  • Molly Brough

    Me too, Kelli! Rachel, you pretty much made me change my Master's Degree to Library Science, and I recently got my first job in a public library! I've never been happier! Thank you! :D Hope to see your blog again soon!

  • Rachel Moani

    Wow... That has made me so happy, I feel like I don't even know how to punctuate this comment, exclamation points seem inadequate for expressing how touched I am. Thank you, Molly, I wish you and your library the best ♥

  • Rachel Moani

    I needed this, thanks Kelly, I miss my blog, too. Maybe I just needed a kick in the pinterest pants to get it fixed :)

  • Molly Brough

    Aww, thanks so much! It's definitely true! I'm doing adult programming now, but am truly hoping to get into kids/YA when I finish up my Master's Degree in May. You have the most amazing ideas, and I will absolutely be using your work as inspiration in the near future! Thank you for sharing your library ideas with the world :D!!!

I love this quote. Children are made readers on the laps of their parents, a new doodle on the children's area windows

Castle on the Children's Area windows. Drawn with window markers.

We're starting February a little early at the Lacey Timberland Library. Black and Gold. And Flawless.

    May I ask what materials you use to create your art?

Guys, my blog was hacked, to which I say "boo, crappy people who hack innocent library craft blogs on the internet, boo." I'm solving my problems with glitter and coffee, because you can't keep a crafter or a librarian down! Here's the evidence/pile of new display decor. Hopefully the blog will be up and running again by the end of the month Happy winter, Everyone!

  • Julie Sell-Osnes

    OOOOoooo there is a BLOG?!!!(Sorry about the hacking) I only just found you on Pinterest, which I barely know how to use, but your stuff is fantastic, wonderul, BOOM mind bomb blowing! And I am swiping it all for the kids & teens in Nebraska...your friend & Feral Librarian, Julie Osnes

  • Awnali Mills

    SOOO glad you said so. I've been worried about you! I went to the blog and had a panic attack because you weren't there and didn't know how to get in touch to know if everything was okay. Sorry you were hacked. I'm getting ready to do a Seuss boat display in your honor!

  • Carrie Allison-Rolling

    I was wondering what happened!

  • Larissa Stretton

    Me too! I went to your blog and you were gone:( mean old hackers....

Summer Reading Supply Table. Overwhelm the children with colorful party decorations and graphics of cute animals reading books and they won't be able to help but pick up a reading log. That's the theory, anyway. (Rachel Moani)

LibrAnime Con! Comic-Con-esque After Hours Event for Teens at the Timberland Regional Library. Fashion Shows, Gaming Tables, Crafts, Food, Drawing Lessons, Costume Makeup Stations, Anime Movie Theatre... it was a party. Wahoo for Teen Programming!
