Library Displays… What do you really see? With Lena Cirillo
This presentation will include an exploration of what makes an engaging library display that captures the attention of its viewer. Participants will gain insights into key approaches to take including the consideration of the art elements, theme and use of props. This will be followed by a conversation about the power of imagery, and how a display can impart knowledge, foster a call to action, invite interaction or promote diverse reading choices. Participants will workshop their creative ideas for displays and contribute to concepts to take away.
