May Display

Since I blatantly stole last month’s Dang Daniel Display from other libraries (via the Teen Librarian Facebook group) I’ve decided to offer up May’s Display idea for the taking!

It bums me out that we scour reviews and some diamonds in the ruff never get checked out.  So I ran a report (we currently use SirsiDynix WorkFlows- PM me if you’d like a step-by-step tutorial I’ve made on how to run reports) on items that had zero circulation stats and came up with a 30 page list!  From here I had a volunteer (shout out to Liliana!) pull these items.  I did a quick search in Amazon to find one-liner reviews (usually the last sentence in the review) from School Library Journal or Kirkus which I found about halfway down the page under the Editorial Reviews.


Here’s an example of a book with a short review:

And here’s the whole display:

Let me know if you steal/borrow the idea and how it works out for you.  Feel free to use the signage or make your own.  Please post pictures!
