I’ve been given a couple new tasks at my new job. They involved creating a rotating display in three places. One of which I was able to get started (see below). I was assigned a book shelf which previously was holding a few flyers because no one knew what to do with it. I thought it might be a good idea to have a display with a theme and books fitting that theme. It’s not the greatest bookshelf, but I added a sign a made and some books and I think it looks better already. It needs a little work to jazz it up, but it’s something.
Next I need to work on the edge of the circ desk to clean up the promotional material and three square slat-walls (which are empty except for the occasional taped up flyer). Close to the slat-wall is a bulletin board which is in the process of being updated by a co-worker who was just hired the same day as me. Hers will have flyers with library promotional material and I don’t think we need that many in a small space. I was trying to come up with something to do when I was told I could use butcher paper to cover the slat-walls with a display which I think I may do. I create children’s displays at my other job and am happy that I can carry that over to this job.
Not I have something to focus my attention on when I’m not on the reference desk. Now I just have to figure out how to oversee programming.
