Whenever a blockbuster movie comes out that has ties to mythology and literature, it is the job of a Librarian to use that to her favor.  Regardless whether you are an elementary, secondary or public Librarian- THOR can find his way onto your displays.

In the case of School Librarians- what an excellent time to expose students to Norse Mythology!  You could do a short lesson on the different Norse Gods and Goddesses and how some of our weekdays are named after them.  You could read a story from Norse legend.  This would also make an excellent time to teach students about Vikings.

Below are a few titles you may want to feature on displays while THOR is in theatres...

 Thor, Vol. 1 (Adult Graphic Novel Series)

Essential Thor, Vol. 1 (Adult Graphic Novel Series)
