January Jackets

Over the holiday break we received dozens of new books--and the question was, how do we promote them? Since we had this cute speech bubble from Scholastic, it seemed like a good idea to use it in some kind of display.
And January Jackets was born!

Each school day in January a different book is featured with a small teaser on the speech bubble. Students are welcome to access our Instagram and/or Snapchat accounts (@DCGLibraries) for the "full" book talk if they're interested.

 Some of the books include those new titles we received over the holiday break, like Lifeboat 12 and The Benefits of Being an Octopus.

Other books are titles we've had in the library but students maybe aren't as familiar with, like The Night Gardener and Thornhill.

The interest in the books--both from students and teachers!--has been great, and most days students ask to check out the featured book. Some even step into the library before school starts just to see that day's January Jackets title. Stay tuned--we're only half-way through January!
