Interested in children/youth programming or creative book displays?

Update, 26/01/2014: Unfortunately Rachel Moani’s blog was hacked, but you can still find her displays and information on her library’s programming on her ‘My Library, Programs, and Displays‘ pinterest board. The links in this post are currently dead, though I’ll leave them up with the hope that the site will be resurrected.

If so, you definitely need to check out the blog of Rachel Moani who works in the youth services department of a public library in Washington state. The blog’s personal and professional, so you’ll get posts about her life and sketchbooks as well as posts about library life. You might recognize this display that made the rounds online during this year’s banned books weeks:

But Moani isn’t a book display online-15-minutes-of-fame one-hit-wonder, so if you’re looking for inspiration you can take a look at her Books Displays and Interactive Displays tags for a ton of beautiful and creative presentations.

She also documents the children’s and teen programming at her library, including events like their Labyrith in the Library, Fairy Tale Character Scavenger Hunt, and LibrAnime Con.
