Display Organization Project

Posted on: December 22, 2008

The displays are no longer dull at the Bloomingdale Public Library since the Adult Services department developed a new approach to displays. The department created a more organized system that assigns display duty to the Adult Services staff on a rotational basis. One of reference librarians is in charge of assigning other staff members to a particular display area on a rotational basis. The librarian produces a chart that covers the next few months and delegates a certain display location area to each staff member. Staff then marks the display’s topic on the schedule so there is no overlap.

In addition to the displays created by staff, community groups and residents are invited to use the display cases to showcase their collections. Submitted by Tim Jarzemsky, Director & Karen Luster, Adult Services Assistant Department Head
