Shelf Talker Center

Posted on

Shelf Talkers is one of the first centers I started using regularly during library classes.  I got this idea from The Centered School Library.  I tell the kids these are little advertisements for books they have enjoyed and want to share with other readers.  So far, students at all grade levels have done a great job creating shelf talkers for our library!    

In our library, we use 3″x5″ index cards, folded in half.  After students complete their shelf talkers, I laminate them and tape them to the shelves in front of the book they advertise.  I have definitely seen an increase in check-outs for the books that are “advertised”.  Here are some shelf talkers you can see decorating the shelves in my library:
