PCI Webinar Marketing Your Collection, Services, and Programs with Better Book Displays

Any library worker can be a hero and use book displays or online book lists to market their library's collection, revealing the hidden gems on their shelves and introducing patrons to materials they may have missed. In addition, book displays, both in the library and online, can be used to market programs, partnerships, and library services as well. Attendees will learn how to craft displays and lists that are effective in promoting the theme or message behind the display.

Join Passive Readers’ Advisory expert Lila Denning for an hour of all the ways that you can promote your library’s collection with better book displays. Book displays are a fun, creative marketing technique that any library can use.  She will show you how to create book displays that will draw readers in and help them to find those titles that don’t get enough attention.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Understand what are the features of a great book display and how to craft them with a focus on marketing your collection
  • Discover ways to use book displays to promote services, ongoing and special programs and events
  • Identify opportunities to fit in book displays all over your building, even in smaller libraries with limited space
