  1. Love seeing your new signs. Wondering...I couldn't quite tell from the signs do you classify by genre or still use broad areas like fiction, nonfiction. Some of my co-workers broke their libraries into genre sections. Also I am beginning a Maker Space also. Still struggling with how I am going to implement it into my program. What are your plans? What types of items did you include in your Maker area?

    1. Hi Tonya,

      I still have broad genre areas and then within the fiction neighborhood, the books have specific genre labels in addition to the call number spine labels.

      With the maker space, I am going to begin with legos (not in photos because I don't quite know where I will store them) and then have a shelf of art supplies and a shelf of other small manipulatives like legos. I will also have the 3D printer supplies here as well.

      It's a work in progress and I would love to hear your ideas as well!

  2. Looks fantastic! I too would love to know about your signage. Like font size and what did you print them on, if you did them yourself, etc. Thanks so much.

    1. A parent designed the signs for me, for which I am very thankful! I explained what I wanted and the overall size of the sign and she went from there. The letters are about 5.5 inches tall. She sent them as PDfs so I don't know the font size, but I would guess about 150? I had the hanging ones (18x24) printed on foam core with added grommets. The smaller ones (11x17) are printed on card stock.
