The reading bench display continued the theme.

The Monopoly pawns were made of aluminum foil atop black paper, and details on the foil were made with a black Sharpie.

Be sure to notice how all of the major signs actually promote our library. The Community Events chest is full of images for our events, Games and Puzzles are one of our newer collections, we’d gone fine-free, etc.

Meggie and Heba had fun both coming up with, and decorating with the theme “Dragonopoly.”

Heba’s largest contribution was the Photoshopping of our dragon mascot into Moneybags, and then putting him in the logo.

How cute is he?!

Finally, Meggie did something that I don’t believe we’ve ever done before: adjust the section signs to match the theme.

I wish that we’d gotten a few more shots of the signs – they’re made to look like the location spaces on the Monopoly game board.

One thing that I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that there were some children (and even parents) who thought that there must be a game called Dragonopoly for them to play. It was a bit of a bummer to let them down.

Overall, this was a really fun theme that began to showcase Meggie and Heba’s creativity and skills. I am so excited to be able to share all the other really cool things they did here before they moved on (one to a full-time job at another library, and one became our Young Adult Librarian…spoiler alert?).

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about anything we’ve done here or in any other post – we’re happy to help!
