March Display Ideas

Spring is coming! More time to hang outside means more time to read to unwind at night.
One of things I miss about being a YA Librarian is making displays. So I thought maybe I'd write up a few posts about display ideas and create a monthly blog post.

March is:
National Craft Month
Display Ideas: Craft Books
Your master gardener team has a plan for your garden that will attract butterflies. Tie this in to your art lessons to deepen the gardening experience.:
Butterflies out of books
Booklist: Craft books or fictional books with crafting characters - Art or Photography

National Nutrition Month
Jump start to summer reading

National Women's History Month
This is a fantastic idea for a Women's History Month display...with some bios and a few novels?  Brilliant!:

Jennifer, thanks so much for the fun display ideas. I was having a difficult time with March.

Aw yeah! These are great ideas. Librarians who go to the effort to get excited and make good book displays can convince you to pick up a book you probably never would have found otherwise!
