Libraries Show It Off with Face-out Book Merchandising

Walk around any library and pay attention to what draws your eye. Chances are it’s something colorful at eye level. Books, if displayed appropriately, can be this eye-catching magnet. Publishers spend time and money to make their book covers pop and libraries can utilize this free art to increase circulation.

Merchandising is the art of displaying items so that our normal human impulses are maximized. In a library you want to focus people’s attention in a manner that helps direct their behavior to make it easy for them to find something new and interesting.

Counter-top book display stands are the perfect vehicle to display books with their covers face-out. Set at eye level on top of check-out counters, on cabinets, or in the middle of shelving units, they can be utilized to let the covers do the selling.

No additional signage is needed – just let the material talk and empower patrons to help themselves. It’s easy to rotate the books and change the theme highlighted, focusing on upcoming events or holidays, different book genres, or books targeted to different age groups or interests.

Counter-top book display stands are inexpensive, can be ordered in small quantities, and come in a variety of sizes and designs. DisplayStands4You.com offers 14 different models. Some can be used to display single titles (model cs2). Others can display books back to back (model cs10). There are stands for small books (model cs14) and stands for large books (model cs9).




Use book stands to show off books in your library and watch your circulation climb.
