Book inquirer scenario: Patron approaches the Librarian and inquires about a book and when asked for additional details on the book that s/he is looking for says, “I don’t remember the title, but I think it’s blue.”
Clearly color is not the most helpful descriptor for locating a book but such limited information would not stop us, Librarians, from helping our library users find the book that they are looking for.
Keep Calm and Choose A Book
To help those who remember little about the book s/he wants or needs, and to kick-off the book display for this year, the Upper School Library set up a shelf display of books with blue cover.
It was DAHL-lighful month at the Lower School Library.
Last September 13th, 2018 was Roald Dahl’s birthday. He would have been 102 years old!
“So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall.”
– Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
To celebrate Dahl’s wonderful literary contributions, the Lower School Library setup a shelf display of the books that he wrote. Some of books included are the classic books that were made into movies –The BFG (2016), Charlie and The Chocolate Factory (2005), and Matilda (1996).
