How would you like to show your community that you are relevant, timely, and “in the know?” Use library displays to fill empty spaces, engage your patrons and promote your services.
Library displays are a powerful tool that can be used to increase circulation, generate statistics, and support your library’s mission statement. Library displays make the library a physical destination where patrons can interact with the library without using a great amount of staff time or funds.
Make library displays a regular and exciting part of your library programming. Highlight local events, recommend read a-likes, boost circulation, and show your community that you are ready to meet their information and entertainment needs.
At the conclusion of webinar, participants will be able to:
● Create a list of book display resources
● Incorporate passive programming into book displays
● Identify topics for book displays of interest to their library customers
● Utilize techniques to promote circulation, participation, and readers’ advisory
● Promote the library’s mission, goals, and programming
