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.
This post is a bit late - I made this display last week, but kept forgetting to blog about it! My fall book display was very successful and all the books were borrowed by last week, so my supervisor asked me to make a new display. Though a bit cliche, I chose Halloween, because it's fun and festive, and who doesn't love Halloween?
I went about the creation of this display a bit differently. While it is still definitely picture book-heavy, I tried to also incorporate chapter books, audio books, and a few non-fictions to appeal to older readers. We'll see if that is as successful as my display that was extremely picture book-centered - I hope it is! Also, while I picked a lot of books that are DEFINITELY Halloween books, I also picked books that might not actually be about Halloween, but are still intended to send a chill down the reader's spine. I think that this approach will appeal to a wider group of patrons.
(Sorry for the glare on the book in the upper right! It is The Monsters' Monster.)

Hopefully, this will get my library's patrons in the Halloween spirit!
