Decorating the Library Media Center for the New School Year

I finished getting the library media center decorated several weeks ago (for the 2016-17 school year), but  I am just getting around to posting (our students started back on August 2nd)! I found a poster at Target (in the dollar section) with a quote from Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you will go.”  This inspired the decoration theme to start out the year.

I hung the posters between the asymmetrical placed windows.

I’m enjoying it and I think the students are, too.  They really like the paper lanterns.

I reused signposts that my husband and I made the 5th grade’s social this past May.  They were also part of my inspiration for decoration this year.
