I used this idea at the beginning of the year as a contest and loved it! I decided to create a library center to let students create their own shelf talkers. This work station allows them to get creative with art materials AND it helps build a community of readers, where we're all sharing books together! I use this workstation in two different ways: as a contest, or as a follow-up to a library lesson. Sometimes I have a "book poster" contest,

Shelf Talkers-These are very cute and it's wonderful that Carolyn shares her template. I used to have this type of shelf talker on my books but the kids kept taking them. Sounds like a good idea for a library center-Create a Shelf Talker.

How do you advertise your eBook collection? Check out the ways other libraries are doing it!: OverDrive wrote a great post about Sacramento Public Library's eBook advertisements. They created stickers for their books, announcing it is also available in eBook format. They also made shelf talkers with QR Codes on the back to alert patrons. They even provided examples any library can copy and modify. Overdrive also created their own sticker and shelf talker templates that you can modify to your library's URL. ACRL's blog highlighted a different kind of eBook shelf marker from Florida International University. This one is laminated and has a call number on the other side, discouraging users from bringing the cards home with them. Might be a GREAT idea for summer reading books? Or, instead of laminating a shelf marker, you can do what Brisbane Grammar Libraries did and order these plastic holders which are magnetic on top so they sit directly on the shelf: Barbara Plum also shared a display she made for her school library, printing out pictures of eBook covers inside iPad frames. Very cool and easy to do! But if you only have a bulletin board, why not put together a display there? Love this one from Clear Falls Library: And don't forget that you can advertise your eBooks outside of the library. Michael Stephens took this picture at the local airport where Traverse Area District Library advertise their eBooks. I would love to see more of these around trains and bus stations, too. Oletangy Liberty Middle School actually has a kiosk right in their school library, encouraging students to check out the public library's collection of e-content: eBooks, music, audio books, and films. It is a touch screen and students only need a library card and the app to download up to 10 items at a time. This project cost them $1,850 since they already owned all of the content. (Not sure if they used the 3M kiosk pictured below, but I wanted to provide a visual.) Happy eBook advertising in 5 minutes!

What a great idea to promote reading! Shelf talkers. Students use an index card to write an advertisement about a book. Tape it to the shelf below the book!! My students would LOVE this!
Good Ideas, Talkers Students, Talker Center, Library Ideas, Advertise Books, Book Shelves, Cool Ideas, Shelf Talker
In our library, we use 3"x5" index cards, folded in half. After students complete their shelf talkers, I laminate them and tape them to the shelves in front of the book they advertise. I have definitely seen an increase in check-outs for the books that are "advertised". That's a COOL idea.

Tools for keeping track of new release books, printable forms for hold slips and notification forms, and printable shelf signs alerting students to popular titles. Think this is a great way to manage popular titles, and to make kids feel really special when they are picked to be the first reader of a book.

Basic author study idea
Author Study Folders can be found by clicking the photo below! I went to a conference with Katie Wood Ray this summer...and I learned SO many amazing things that helped me see writing workshop in a new light. One of my favorite things I learned was that it is super important that your students realize that authors are real people who make books just like them. She taught me to pay CLOSE attention to dedication pages, about the author blurbs, and book jacket information. Me and Katie Wood Ray (I love this book!) I've done that this year (along with letting my kindergarteners listen to lots of author interviews online) and I've been AMAZED at the fact that these kindergarteners know these authors so well, and feel like they are in good company when they are making books during workshop. SO...last year, I did tons of author studies. I also made these information folders so my students could learn about the authors we were reading about. This year, I re-made them and wanted them to be really kid-friendly. My K babies won't even let me read an author book unless this folder is on the easel! And the most HILARIOUS part is at the end of a read aloud- my students LITERALLY say, "Thanks Mo, (Willems) that was a great story." Ha! The best part is after you study and author and want to "retire" them to a basket, these folders make a great way to label the basket so your kiddos know where to put books when they are done! So, I thought I'd create some folders for tons of authors that are fun to study. All you need is a file folder! I'm giving away Mo for free but you'll find them in my stores for only $1.00 per author. (After the study, we fill discuss traits that the author has and record them together) (Written in Vis-a-Vis Markers so I can use them year-to year) Here are a list of the authors I plan to cover: (I am willing to take requests if you study an author that isn't listed below- just leave me a comment!) *Mo Willems *David Shannon *Dr. Seuss *Helen Lester *Laura Numeroff *Jan Brett *Kevin Henkes *Leo Lionni *Eric Carle *Donald Crews *Ezra Jack Keats *Cynthia Rylant *Doreen Cronin *The Wood (Don & Audrey) *Amy Krouse Rosenthal *Jack Prelutsky * Robert Munsch * Mem Fox * Marc Brown * Lois Elhert *Gail Gibbons *Angela Johnson Here is a FREE Mo Willems Folder Kit! All you have to do is cut out the pages and glue them on a funky-fresh file folder!

Do you have plenty of space to shelve the books in your library? If you do, consider yourself VERRRRRY lucky...............if you don't, I may have an idea for freeing up some extra space. We shelve our picture book "series" books at the beginning of our picture book collection. Having books about the same character shelved together helps children and their parents locate the books easily. We were using some outdated plastic dividers that took up 2-3 books worth of shelf space that we really need soooooooooo.......we discovered a nifty solution. Plastic shelf marker paddles from Highsmith are now being used to divide the character books in our picture book collection. We printed pictures of the characters and used Modge Podge to adhere them to the paddles.Then, we attached the paddles to books ends with book tape. Our character series collection looks tidy and pre-readers are able to see clearly where their favorite books are located. This idea is working so nicely that today my assistant and I are making paddle dividers for the Juvenile Series books to replace the plastic dividers that take up too much space . We printed out the name of the series for each paddle in the Juvenile Series section. Ahhhhhhhhhhh......shelf space...........sweeter words were never spoken!

I work in an Outreach Services Department of a public library – which means I get to drive the big bookmobiles! This also means I have to organize all the books inside of the big bookmobiles – which can be a lot less fun than one would think. We visit child care centers and elementary schools and have limited time with the students while they are on the bookmobile, making it virtually impossible to help every single student find the perfect book. Many of the students come onto the bookmobile knowing exactly what they want – these tend to be the students who want the Barbie, Disney, Spongebob etc type of books – not always the greatest of literature – but at least they are reading! Anyway, I tried to come up with ways of organizing these books that made it easier for the students to find the books on their own. I also had zero budget for this project, so I knew the fancy series labels I dreamed about were not going to ever become a reality. I decided to use the large amount of old empty VHS cases (remember those) to turn them into beautiful series labels. I printed labels with the title of the series and a picture of an easily identifiable image that goes along with the series (to help my not yet readers). I taped 2 VHS cases together long ways – taped the label on one of the spines and viola! a series label!!! They ended up looking spectacular and the students just loved being able to find their own book. I was also happy that I was able to reuse something that would have typically just been thrown away!!
