Oregon Reader’s Choice Awards: poster display

A poster held up by a bookend displays cover art and lists titles and authors for ORCA upper-elementary division nominees: Abe Lincoln at Last! by Mary Pope Osborne, The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens, Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai, Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver, Pie by Sarah Weeks, Vanishing Acts by Phillip Margolin and Ami Margolin Rome, Young Fredle by Cynthia Voigt and Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke. To the poster's right, five books -- Inside Out & Back Again, Liesl & Po, The Emerald Atlas, Young Fredle and Pie -- are shelved between bookends. Each book has an ORCA label on its spine.

A poster and set of books promote the Oregon Reader’s Choice Award in the Bellview Elementary School library. I got the idea during a visit to one of the schools in Medford School District 549C.

I created the poster in Microsoft Word and exported it to PDF.

My Cuesta College internship in Library and Information Technology is through the MSD’s Instructional Media Center. Ruch Elementary School in southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley had an Oregon Reader’s Choice Award display.

Happily, Bellview teacher-librarian Lauren Hall had already ordered several nominees for the Oregon Reader’s Choice Award. She’d also ordered titles nominated for the Beverly Cleary Children’s Choice Award.
