In addition to book displays, I also have the privilege of decorating the door to a storage closet in the teen area. It’s partially blocked by a bookshelf which can make attractive designs challenging, but I’ve managed a few strategies to make it look a bit less lop-sided. One of these strategies is to use small elements that are scattered about to imitate the appearance of randomness and whimsy. When fall came about, my love of puns pushed me to create this “bulletin board” with the social media handles of several authors, books in the library with fall in the title, and an invitation for teens to add their own social media handles on blank leaves left for that purpose.

No one ended up sharing any of their handles, but the simple display hit on a handful of information needs and was an opportunity for passive programming.
