Tips for the display:--Use old LPs from thrift stores as decoration or overlap on top of a table. They can be microwaved and bent to cover table edges.--Use back issues of Rolling Stone or other music magazines to decoupage a false tabletop or background--Make bookmarks with a link to Youtube playlist/Podcast--Include eye catching props such as old boom boxes or cassettes with the tape pulled out for streamers

Rock School is a weekly syndicated radio show originating from KSLU in Hammond. Every week, hosts Dr. Joe Burns and Chad P. explore a different topic. We recorded a show for Banned Books Week in which we talked about the books that had been challenged/banned and played the songs that corresponded.

Your library can: --Play and link to the Rock School podcast on the Rock School site (Also available free on iTunes)--Make and link to a Youtube playlist of the songs that relate to books--Approach a local radio station who might be interested in letting you guest host a show of your own!You can do it! Being on the radio is easy, and the worst that can happen is that they say no.
