I took on a huge task during my work days. I didn't want to leave for summer break until I actually did what I said I was going to do MONTHS ago. You know how that goes. You create a to-do list...keep adding more...and then realize you never really accomplished much on that list. You do everything ELSE except what's on the list. Can you relate? I would think so. That librarian life amiright? Well, thanks to this AMAZING librarian on Twitter I was inspired to update the manga section signage. Jennifer Zimny (@jzimnycricket) first posted this on her Twitter and I fell in LOVE with how eye-catching the manga section looked with bold and colorful signage. Check it out--
Isn't it gorgeous?! Well, luckily -- and just in time too -- there was a storage room on my campus that was filled with 3-inch binders that no one was using so my assistant principal let me have them. I put them to good use and made these manga series separators. I created the spine labels on Canva, printed them on regular paper (I would have preferred cardstock, but I didn't have any), and voila! Check out how it turned out! If you want the template to the signage I created on Canva you can access it here.
I can't wait for the students to see this when they come back from summer break. There are still some details I need to add like updating the call #s, but that can wait until the fall semester. I'll have my library ambassadors help with that!
Are you updating your manga sections? I'd love to see yours! If there's anything you need during the process let me know. Until later manga fanatics!
