World Oceans Day - June 8th

By Karen Waschinski and Trish MacGregor

Thank you Karen for sharing your inspiring displays. I like the way you have used the theme in a variety of ways for the different spaces of your library.

Here are Karen's comments:
'I'd like to share the displays currently up in our Library for World Oceans Day (June 8). We have a small display case on our main floor calling attention to the plight of our oceans in regards to plastic pollution. I became aware of the photos of the dead birds from the website Midway and the "water" behind the Lorax is simply newspaper bags. Our children's floor has a more inviting, bubbly display featuring "Dive Deep into Books" as a theme. Note that the backboard blue was inexpensively created using plastic table cloths which can be reused as craft drop cloths in the future (and then recycled!). Also, a lot of the watery props were originally used for a past summer reading program oceans theme, so they are also getting a second life!'
