Potatoes and the English - November Displays

This month we're featuring spuds and books from across the pond.

Our first display is all about "Book Potatoes -- s-mashing books that have been vegetating on the shelf too long." I totally copied this display (and the original looks way better) so can't claim any of the creativity behind this idea. The display features books that have never been circulated (we own a scary number of these!) or books that haven't left the library in few years.

Our circulation desk display area is dressed up as an Olde English Book Shoppe, complete with Big Ben and a British telephone booth -- props leftover from a local festival. The titles featured here were either written by English authors or the books are set in the UK.


  1. Oh my goodness, I LOVE your book potato display! I stumbled onto your blog by very fortunate accident and when I saw this I literally laughed out loud.

    I am so very flattered that you chose to make your own version of my book potato display. And by the way, I believe yours is WAY better than mine! :) You rock!

    I've just added a link to this page on my photos so others can see your handiwork as well as check out the rest of your terrific blog.

    1. Your display rocks! The whole idea was really creative. I regularly check out your feed to see what new display ideas you've got going on. Keep 'em coming!
