Head in the Clouds

Summer sky, floating clouds, starry nights inspired our SLP decor this year. Marge, at, inspired me to share some photos of what summer looks like at our library. Marge has posted some great pictures of the space theme artwork families created at their library and shared some other links to beautiful ideas at libraries.

The teen area looks awesome with lights, starry sky windows, and letters the kids painted. We had a program where they each painted a square of Van Gogh's Starry Night. Out teen area is so small I had to step partway into the restroom to take the picture :  /

Cynthia, my program assistant, is a marvel with plastic tablecloths and can turn them into the most amazing things! We have clouds hanging above my desk that are made out of them and they looks so frothy and fun.

We draped some gossamer cloth and hung some stars, then set up a cardboard castle for kids to climb in and color. Done.

Thanks, Marge, for all the ideas to make this summer fun and stress free!


  1. Thank you! We were pleased with the results and the kids were too.
