Naomi Bates from Northwest High School in Justin, Texas, had a great infographic in the newest issue of Library Media Connection. In it, she pairs a fiction book with a nonfiction book of a similar topic. Since statistics show that historically more fiction is checked out in our libraries than nonfiction, we decided to do something about it!
In all, 11 pairs of books are featured with topics including historical fiction (World War II and the Vietnam War), sports (Negro League Baseball), animals (shark attacks), and hobbies (magic). Below are some examples:
Feel free to stop by and browse the display--and soon all of the featured pairs will be available for check out!
