Step into 2016 ready to warm readers’ hearts with new products from ALA Graphics

CHICAGO – ALA Graphics’ new catalog is here and filled with products to remind patrons and students the importance of learning and reading all year long. Love Monster makes his debut appearance on the cover of the spring catalog. He is a slightly hairy, googly-eyed monster looking for someone to love him just the way he is. Display this poster in your spaces to warm young readers’ hearts to open a book.

Along with Love Monster, you are sure to find something for your children’s spaces, including two of our new character posters How Do Dinosaurs… and Duck & Goose.

  • Based on the popular How Do Dinosaurs… series, this new poster features six dinosaurs enjoying all that the library has to offer. It’s a brilliant way to show how your library can be explored and also teach children the names of the featured dinosaurs!
  • Our new Duck & Goose poster and bookmark feature the two unforgettable feathered friends who share a very important message about working together and getting along. Display these to show that friends can get along just fine when they read!

Need something for your teen spaces? Our latest teen poster features original artwork by #1 New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Maggie Stiefvater inspired by her latest series The Raven Cycle. This poster will remind teens and tweens that the future belongs to those who read.
