Missing Downton Abbey? Keep Calm and Read on! Our newest display gives addicts a chance to stay in the Victorian World by reading. The sign reads “The pleasure of your company is requested in a good book”. Included in the display are a fancy tablecloth, some white gloves, and a china tea set as well as a silver tray that needs polishing, with some polish. Other props may be forthcoming. We got the posters and bookmarks at ALA midwinter from Random House. We added both fiction and non-fiction books that were in our collection that were related.
For our high school students, this is a bit of a niche market, but we’ve already checked out two books and gotten some excited responses.
