Twenty Rules for Better Book Displays by Susan Brown


  • As a marketer who reviews statistics and demographics constantly, I find this fascinating. The Google search terms that lead people to the post include “how to make a good book display,” “library book display ideas,” and “better book displays for libraries.” This information leads me to two conclusions – 1) libraries are doing book displays and 2) librarians want to make them better. I write a lot about social media engagement, but it is clear that even in the digital era of e-books and Pinterest, visually appealing physical displays with interesting topics are still a great way to engage readers.


  1. I wish my local bookstore read this article! Their main ‘display’ consists of a pretty large table on which completely random books are unattractively laid out. Very interesting reading!
