New books are blooming

By Martha Hickson

Martha has created this blooming marvelous display for Spring - read all about it below:

'Spring has finally arrived here in New Jersey, and we've used the change
of seasons to introduce some color into the library while featuring new
books. We made an assortment of multicolored tissue-paper flowers and put
them into colorful paper-cup "pots." We scattered the pots among a display
of new books, each sporting a bookmark that features a vintage seed
packet. (I looked for the most colorful book covers I could find among the
new arrivals, which is a bit difficult considering all the dark, dystopian
covers on YA books these days.) The signs for the display show a large
photo of a flower and the message "New books are blooming!" Quick, easy,

Thanks for sharing Martha - I love the seed packets! E.
