One of the first things I did when I accepted the library job was plan a year of displays. Our last librarian didn’t do any displays and I really missed that as a library user. Sure, my aren’t completely fancy or impressive, but I remember loving themed displays in the library.

I planned the year of displays so I didn’t have to make week-to-week decisions about what to display next. I consulted the school’s upcoming events calendar as well as important national events (like ANZAC Day and NAIDOC Week). As you can see, I also colour coded my schedule. Because I’m like that.
