Titles for Summer Library and Classroom Bulletin Boards and Displays

Updated on June 11, 2011


Here's a collection of great titles to create summer bulletin boards for your school or public library, or your classroom. Below each title are related suggestions for images, books, etc.). Scroll down to the Table of Contents to navigate to specific topics.

Why create bulletin boards and displays in libraries and classrooms? For libraries, it's important to create a stimulating and inviting space for patrons, and draw attention to available media and people resources, showing that libraries are not merely a luxury, but a true necessity. Classroom bulletin boards and displays are important for teaching, creating a stimulating environment for students and staff, encouraging great student work, and raising self-esteem by displaying student-created items.

The titles listed have been gleaned from many sources, including my own bulletin boards and displays, colleagues, and Internet sources. Over time, more titles will be added, so keep checking back!
