Fall Edition of the ALA Graphics Catalog Now Online and Includes 12+ New Posters and Bookmarks
More than a dozen new posters and bookmarks make their debut, including those inspired by the popular children’s book series “Bad Kitty” and “Five Little Monkeys,” as well as Caldecott Honor recipient Marla Frazee and author Mary Lyn Ray’s forthcoming book “Stars.”
Whit & Wisty Allgood, the magical teen heroes of James Patterson’s “Witch & Wizard” series, appear on a vibrant poster touting the transformative power of reading, while Nikki Maxwell and friends, stars of the “Dork Diaries” graphic novel series, make their READ® poster debut. “We’re excited to have so many offerings for tweens and teens this fall. These posters and bookmarks make a great addition to any library’s celebration of Teen Read Week,” said Rachel Johnson, Director of ALA Graphics. “The art can’t help but inspire reading for pleasure!”
Promoting the value of education and information at any age, the Knowledge is Power Poster Set features insightful quotes, such as “Information is the currency of democracy,” from Thomas Jefferson, as well as other wise words from Aristotle and Francis Bacon. This set of materials will appeal to young adults and older groups, adding inspiration to the walls of schools, libraries, colleges, museums and other institutions.
Friends of libraries are heroes in their own right and should be recognized as such. The new catalog introduces Friend Your Library Buttons and downloadable materials that library staff can customize for local Friends events and initiatives. The buttons, bearing two different slogans—Friend Your Library and I’m a Library Friend —feature bright logos that pop with enthusiasm.
Find all of the new products at the ALA Store, where your purchases fund advocacy, awareness and accreditation programs for library professionals worldwide.
