New Library Signs

 This is my third year in the library.  My first year I was trying to get a feel for everything.  My second year was hectic with a lot of scheduling issues and last minute coverages.  This year, I finally feel like I have time to update some things in the library that need to be updated.  One of which is the signage, or lack thereof.  What I have also noticed a lack of is available signs for purchase or to get inspiration from online.

I decided to start with the Picture Book section.  Using Canva, I created a few different signs but I couldn't choose which one I liked the best.  Actually, that's not true.  I had a favorite but I wasn't sure it would catch the students' attention.  So, I decided to informally poll the students and teachers who came to the library.  Here are the different signs I made (one I didn't take a picture of because I disliked it immediately):

And the winner is....

The students overwhelmingly chose #3.  I fixed the border so it ran around the perimeter of the words.  I am so fortunate to have a poster machine in my library so that I can make things like this on the spot.

Which one is your favorite?
