Library Display Signs: April Themes

SAMPLE POSTERS (BOTH INCLUDED IN THE SET)

April is National Poetry Month! This poster is great for a display of poetry collections. You could also use it for free verse, or I also have a Free Verse poster in my March display posters set.

Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday on April 23 with novels and stories for your theater buffs!

Here are the themes I chose for April:

  • April Fool’s Day or National Humor Month (humor genre)
  • World Autism Day (2nd)—Books about people on the autism spectrum*
  • Earth Day (22nd)—Conservation & Sustainability
  • Earth Day (22nd)—Animals in Danger
  • Shakespeare’s birthday/World Book Day (23rd)—Shakespeare spin-offs
  • Shakespeare’s birthday (23rd) —Books about theater and performing arts
  • National Superhero Day (28th)—Superheroes and supervillains*
  • National Poetry Month—Poetry collections*
  • National Multiple Birth Awareness Month—Twins & Triplets

*Themes with a star include two posters with minor variations.

THE READALIKE BOOKMARKS

As always, each theme comes with readalike bookmarks for picture books, elementary, middle school, and high school and adults. These are lists of books to match each theme, sorted by age of the reader. All the bookmarks are fully-editable in PowerPoint.

This image shows the Poetry bookmarks included in this set. The titles on the poetry bookmarks are collected poetry or poems in picture book format. They do not include novels in verse.


Every title included on the bookmarks:

  • is professionally-reviewed for the age levels I recommend
  • has received positive reviews, mostly from professional reviewers though I also consider high Goodreads ratings
  • is currently in-print and available on both Titlewave and Amazon

Because I include lots of newly-released titles on the bookmarks, they also make a fabulous tool for collection development!

WHEN WILL THE MAY POSTERS BE READY?

I am already hard at work on the May posters, so you’ll want to stay tuned for when I post them. My goal for posting the monthly poster sets is the first Thursday of each new month, and the monthly posters will continue to be a free product for the first two days they are posted. This will continue through September, when I will have completed the entire 12-month set. After the set is complete, I plan to upgrade and revise the sets annually to add new themes and keep the readalike bookmarks current.

As for the rest of the New Product Thursdays, all my newest products are half-off for the first 48 hours. These products will always post on Thursday mornings CST, so you’ll have through Saturdays at noon CST to buy them for half-price. If you are worried you won’t remember to check every Thursday, I will also post reminders on my MrsReaderPants FaceBook page and new Instagram account. If you follow my store on TPT, you’ll also get notifications of my new products through the app.
