The Paper Wall. Book screen wallpaper

Your desktop and screensaver can be meaningful

Think about what desktop wallpaper you use. Is it the default, or has it been chosen to reflect your library's atmosphere or policies? You can select a "book themed" image, or even superimpose a reminder about computer behaviour on an appropriate scene.

Haiku Deck can help you create attractive images with a message.
