I do love this season, and all things Halloween. Here are some pics of how I've decorated the library:
|Main bulletin board, including quote by Edgar Allan Poe|
Skelton and tarantula are original things I drew, the rest is vintage Halloween decor, clip art, and a library poster.
For the light green and brown "grass," I just cut up some construction paper all crazy-like.
"Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality."
-Edgar Allan Poe
|The cylindrical display cabinet, which I keep unlocked so I can encourage kids to grab books out of it.|
The raven on top has a tag around its neck that says, "Nevermore."
|The "Coming Soon" whiteboard, festooned with glowing skulls.|
(And yes, we DO now have "Blood of Olympus.")
|Vintage 3D Halloween decorations|
|The green skulls are just clip art printed on colored paper, with orange paper flames, mounted against black paper.|
|I like this poster. It always makes me think of Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes."|
|These are the windows of my horrible little cave of an office.|
