Merchandising and marketing play integral roles in successful librarianship—after all, patrons are hardly different from consumers shopping in retail environments. For busy librarians searching for great ideas on creating eye-catching displays and new ways to boost circulation, this title is a resource of tremendous value.
Proper library merchandising doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive, time-consuming, or constitute a huge headache. Ready-Made Book Displays explains the principles behind effective displays and presents a wide variety of ready-made book displays that can be easily replicated, providing catchy titles, materials and props lists, reproducible hand-outs, and photographs to guide librarians in quickly assembling successful displays.
These display ideas can be utilized in several different venues—in-shelf, point-of-checkout, display case, and others—and can be targeted to coincide with events, holidays, and celebrations, as well as for general book promotion. Each of the 55 fiction displays includes a prop idea list, a related Dewey subject list, media tie-ins, and an annotated and reproducible booklist. It's everything the busy librarian needs to create appealing, successful book displays—all contained in one handy guidebook.
