Hello there! I am sneaking in a quick post while on hiatus to share something fun. It’s Banned Books Week and my coworker and I created this very cool display that I can’t help but show off because I’m so proud of how it turned out 🙂
To show patrons how “dangerous” books are, we made our very own Monster Book of Monsters from Harry Potter. It’s meant to look as though it’s eating the smaller books 🙂
You can’t quite tell from the photo, but surrounding our focal point are various banned or challenged books. Fun fact: When we went to pull these titles from our shelves, we discovered that most of them were checked out!
If you’re doing something fun for Banned Books Week, tell me about it in the comments! And, if you’d like to see a tutorial of how we managed to create this prop, let me know and I would be happy to share.
