Wordless Wednesday | Fun Library Display




Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - I think one of the fun parts of a librarian's job would be to put together displays of books based on various themes. 

2 - This particular one caught my eye. The sign reads: "Families more dysfunctional than yours."

3 - I love how they used an old card catalog to display the books.


What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  2. Love it!

    And I remember actually using those card catalogs to look things up for research papers....

    1. I remember card catalogs as well. Does that mean I'm old?

  3. I remember using a card catalog while working for the Sheriff's Department. Everyone pretty much has this kind of system back in the day.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Ellen. ♥

    1. It was about the only way you could keep things organized before computers.

  4. Ha! That's a wonderful display. I like that *Probably. :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful season!

  5. LOL! I love it. That's why people watch trashy shows like Springer - they are looking for families more screwed up than their own.

    1. So true - you always feel better about yourself when you know there's someone worse off than you.

  8. That is awesome! Our library does themes like that too. Currently it's Christmas, of course! I'd love to have an old card catalog in my office. I'd totally find enough little stuff to put in it! *LOL*

  9. It just dawned on me how fun it would be to own an old card catalog. That would be perfect for storing small items. And that's a very clever display. Makes one stop and think, too, me especially in this era where my father won't talk to us over a stupid little misunderstanding. ~sigh~ What can you do? I'm done dealing with that bitter old man. (Sorry; I dump on folks every now and then... Heh...) Be well!

  10. That's a doggone clever hook to attract people to those books. And the card catalog? (sigh) I miss 'em... :)

  12. Hi Ellen.
    Merry Christmas to you and your's.
    It took me a while to see how they got those books to stay where they were put but this morning I saw how they had done it, clever.
    I went to a secondhand bookstore yesterday to get some old books for my daughter's husband's children, Wow, what a mess. Nothing categorized, no alphabetical order and so on and so on. Just lots of shelves piled high with old books.
    I think owning a second hand book store requires a quite bit of librarian skill to say the least.
    Blessings from South Africa, Geoff.

    Hope you and Scott are having a great holiday!
