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.
