Let’s Celebrate!!

Some Library branches will have Christmas and other holiday decoration, but I work in a library that likes to stay neutral.  Displays with christmas trees and other holiday symbols are not allowed, so it becomes a little tricky in figuring out a good “December” display idea.  For children we did displays on “crafting” and “snow” which is great, because there are a lot of wonderful books for children.

To come up with an adult book display became a little trickier.  There are plenty of books for adults who want to read a book or watch a video set around Christmas.

So for the month of December, I decided lets just celebrate “Adult Reads” and grab books that have holiday colors and have good positive titles on them.  The top colors for the holiday season are “blue, white, silver, gold, red, queen & purple”.
