Library Spotlight: Beginning the Year Displays

During the first week of school, Granite’s elementary media clerks gathered in small groups for professional development sessions held at five different elementary school libraries in the district. In this setting they were able to collaborate with other clerks who work in library spaces of the same or similar design, exploring the spaces to gain ideas for improving organization, flow, displays, and atmosphere. In this post we feature display ideas from these five libraries as they stood ready to welcome back students in the coming days.
