I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.
As part of my grad school program, I had the opportunity to get an internship with the children and youth services department of a local public library. I am so excited about it! I think it will be a really great experience and I can't wait to see what I'll be doing there over the course of the next year. I'm going to be posting blog entries about my experience there on this site, because 1) it's book related and 2) I want to be able to have a place where I can go back and see examples of everything that I've done. And, as an added bonus, I can get feedback from anyone on here who'd like to give it! I know there are plenty of library-goers on here :)
Today was my first day and I already was able to jump right in and start getting experience - first, I observed my supervisor's story time and then, I got to create a fall book display!
I didn't get too specific in terms of a target audience for this display. It's in the children's room, so I stuck to picture books, but I didn't make any distinction as to if I was targeting toddlers or school age children. I included the following titles:
Hopefully, this gives parents who visit the library a good selection of fall books to choose from! I tried to get a wide variety of topics, while still staying within the confines of autumn and harvest books.
