Spirit Decorating 2013 - We Are the Zoo

In 2013 we pulled out the stops with "We Are the Zoo." This was our award-winning entry. First Place!

Note the crepe paper "bars" on the "cage" that is the circulation desk. Our student workers wore zookeeper hats, but nobody wanted their photo taken for posterity :-)

We decorated the fake plants from the library entrance with a menagerie of flying things. For some reason many of the IT staff had stuffed animal collections...

Tigers wear hats! We were lucky to have a font that included animals.

Animal reading is important.

The petting zoo was extremely popular. Students enjoyed taking selfies with the animals and generally cuddling them.

Some animals just hung out.
