About Judy Serritella
Judy Serritella is the coordinator of Library Media Services at Georgia Department of Education in Atlanta, GA.
"At last! Hundreds of bulletin board ideas designed specifically for secondary school librarians are readily accessible in one volume. The inspiration comes from a web site devoted to bulletin boards for Grades 7-12. Basic practical tips suggest ways to liven up displays by using three-dimensional materials such as corrugated cardboard or wallpaper. Ideas focus on information students need to know as well as the promotion of reading and library services. Chapters divide the concepts into common topics such as seasons, reading promotion, and cultural diversity. Many times the suggestions come with a list of facts to choose from, adding versatility to the designs. The most exciting chapters promote the use of Big6O research skills, the responsible use of technology, and interactive bulletin boards to challenge high school students. One whole chapter is devoted to wonderful quotations about the value of literacy, libraries and books. The appendix contains a calendar listing all kinds of things to celebrate-from author's birthdays to the first patent given for chewing gum. This book has enough ideas to keep library bulletin boards fresh and stimulating for a long time. The table of contents contains enough detail to help locate a particular idea easily. For any secondary librarian who is weary of having to convert an idea from an elementary source to one appropriate for high school students, this book is a must-have. Highly recommended." - Library Media Connection
