April Fools' Fun: 5 Ideas for the Last Minute Librarian

Saturday is April Fool's Day. How is your library participating? For those of you who haven't had the time to plan anything, we've rounded up some easy ideas that you can do in your library.

Self Check Out

What a brilliant idea from Platteville Public Library! All you need is a mirror and a sign. We love that they added (April 1st only!) to help with the joke.

Check out a Kitten, Return a Cat

Sacramento Public Library announced that their Library of Things have been replaced by a Library of Cats. Any library can use this idea, though, even if you don't have a special collection.

Decorate Your Return Bin

Curtis Library used shoes sticking out of either side of their Return Bin for a funny picture on April Fool's Day. Who doesn't have a spare set of sneakers hanging around? 

Needed: Book Cuddlers

Need an image for around the library or on your social media? Here's a fun one we created. Feel free to download and reuse!

Announce a New Shelving System

Inspired from our post last year, New Library Trend: Organizing Books by Color and Size, is another image that you can print or reshare.  

Happy April Fool's Day!
