Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

By Jill Hames

Welcome to the Blog Jill, hope you enjoyed looking around.
Jill has generously shared two of her displays, this one is a creative way of approaching a very serious topic and works very well. Here are her comments: 

'I wanted to keep the display lighthearted, even though it is a serious topic. I used lavender paper to wrap YA books. All the books have some form of teenage relationship. On the covers, we wrote the book's barcode to facilitate circulation. We also wrote something to do with either a positive relationship or a sign of abuse. For example, "Healthy Relationship = Encouraging each other." Included in the display are bookmarks with Internet resources to help people in abusive relationships. The bookmarks and display sign have pink roses, again, trying to keep things light so that people will look at the content'.
