Signs Signs Everywhere Signs

Summer was a big blast of change along with all of the usual summer frenzy at the library. I certainly breathed a sigh of relief when it was over, as most of us do,when the summer reading program is finally put to bed. Since we have been undergoing gigantic staff changes, including the director(and no, he was not replaced by the kangaroo, although he did get things hopping).

 I tried to make everything as uncomplicated as possible. We were so fortunate to be offered a college student through 4H who did some awesome STEM programs and helped with programs we had already planned.

In an effort to use what we have we brainstormed a GREAT IDEA for signage. Every summer we buy a couple of the big banners and usually one of the big cardboard stand ups. It seems a shame to just roll them up and send them to "the basement" where many things go to a final resting spot.

What were we going to use to promote upcoming events? Skywriting? Probably not in the budget. A new flashing, outdoor, light up sign? Not happening. Soooooooooooooooo......we bought some chalkboard paint and used what we had. Just look at our wonderful signs! And the beauty is, they can be used again and again and again and again...........
