Bulletin Board Images

For 14 years I have worked in either middle or high school, mostly high school. This year I obtained a position as an elementary Library Media Assistant. I love my job! Elementary school is definitely still a learning experience for me. One thing I’m lacking on is creative bulletin boards. I’ve gotten the job down but, that is an area that I could certainly use major improvement in. I get ideas online and try my best. Some of the displays throughout the school are amazing and I’m in awe at the creativity that people possess.

The above photo on the left is one I took using my iPhone of my spring bulletin board display. I made changes to the photo using the Tuxpi Photo Editor (https://www.tuxpi.com/). I cropped the photo so that the wall isn’t displayed and adjusted the brightness, saturation, and contrast. Tuxpi is very easy to use. The nice thing is you don’t have to sign up for an account. It is quite simple to add your picture, make adjustments, and then save the changes to your computer. Tuxpi has features that allow you to add text, photo borders, and even art. Even though I think that stuff is super cool I didn’t use it in my photo because there was already so much going on.

The above photo is one I could certainly try to emulate in the future. I love how they not only have the bulletin board but, corresponding books underneath. I also cropped this photo using Tuxpi.

    Hi Mia,
    Your post about bulletin boards has me questioning, “Could bulletin boards be more digital or more photographic somehow?” Now, I am not yet a librarian so please excuse my ignorance in asking this question if many of you know the answer already. As I’ve read about billboards in our book, I’ve thought about how similar design possibilities could or could not apply to classroom walls and library bulletin boards. I’ve thought about how the billboards on the side of the highway are digital and always changing. These might be too expensive for schools, but may be part of a library’s future?

    P. S. I can’t get the comment post area to let me keep the book title italicized as it should be represented… anyone know how?
