A few of my favorite things

Now that 2014 is coming to a close,  I thought I would share with you all one of my very favorite things about the Bellingham Public Library.  It may surprise you …

I LOVE our book displays.  The staff here is endlessly inventive and always amusing.  And the focus is always to get the right books to the right readers – that thought alone makes me geek out like the library nerd that I am.  Plus, the holiday always make our displays more special and inviting.  So, obviously, I took pictures.  Obviously.

Let me show you!

Here is a Christmas tree made out of books.  It is the most darling thing in our front lobby

Speaking of Christmas, here is a selection of good holiday reads in the Children's Library.

And here is my FAVORITE display this month.   Deborah collected all of the books that had been purchased with donation funds and created this  amazing wall of good reads.

She even decorated it with the book plates we place in each book.  This is such a darling detail.

And the best part about these displays?  They loooook way better in person.  (Trust me, I’m a librarian – not a photographer.)  So you know what that means … it is time to visit us here at the Bellingham Public Library!
