It is the perfect time of year to do some moon watching.

Deogratias: A Tale of RwandaThe holiday season is one of the best times of the year. The food is great, the company is even better. There's nothing quite like the joy that comes from giving and getting gifts.

But, the season can also be overwhelming. Thanksgiving turns into Christmas. You've spent all of your money on gifts and parties. You're exhausted and stretched thin by your family. There's only so much you can take of those pesky grandparents or Aunt so-and-so marveling at how tall you've gotten. Or, maybe, the holiday season is rough because you don't have any of that.

Image of bookmarksMy name is Ty’Yhona and for my 2012 SYEP Capstone Project I chose the Collection Development track. I chose to do this track because I thought it would be a great experience for me to learn how to merchandise and create different types of displays. My final product were bookmarks I created and a display highlighting my books of choice.
