Birds migrate to environments where they survive and thrive."
It's not too late! Find the posters that should have arrived in your schools (New Zealand) and gather together all your Samoan books to celebrate Samoan Language Week! Our Samoan students always appreciate the effort to recognize their culture and it's a great way to promote new and related books.
Even though it's not easy being green, Kermit the frog is having a great time presiding over the library. This display is to promote the green books in our collection to help students with their selection for our 2016 Olympic Reading Challenge. To qualify for the golf event, students have to read a green book (golf green - I know, a bit of a stretch!):
If anyone would like a copy of this challenge I am happy to share, just email me.
This display promotes Karen's Summer Reading Program: 'Where will reading take you this summer?' Looking through Karen's window should really inspire students as they are reminded of all the possibilities of places they can visit through reading! Thanks for sharing Karen.
I was looking for an opportunity to promote our E-book collection again and managed to find time to throw this display together ready for 'Read an E-Book Week' next week.We have eBook copies of all the print books on display. The poster was downloaded from the link above.
Zero Discrimination Day is a UNAIDS campaign of solidarity that stands up to racism, discrimination at work, discrimination at school, and other activities that reduce people's ability to participate fully and meaningfully in society. Around the world, this movement has garnered the support of many celebrities and prominent figures who want a world free of stigma and discrimination.
For this display I printed off a copy of this year's poster with a short description about the campaign. The butterflies were copied from the shape used on the official logo and include words encouraging tolerance and respect.

I am so pleased when others are inspired by the displays on this Blog.
I like the way Rose directly challenged her students to read a book to challenge their thinking.
Here are her comments:
'Your Zero Discrimination display was inspiration for me as I'd never heard of this particular day, and with our racial issues at the forefront of the news, it is particularly apt. So I quickly downloaded their posters etc and created this noticeboard and a display of relevant books in the library'.
