Pub. Date:
In this brief, well-organized volume, librarian LaPerriere and merchandising professional Christiansen (both with the Denver Public Library) introduce principles and practices for branding and creating appealing displays to attract readers and boost circulation in libraries. In chapters supported by examples illustrated in b&w photos, the authors discuss the use of collection presentation standards as well as ideal locations for displays, the use of fixtures and furniture, props, detailed steps for aesthetic and practical display-building, and upkeep. They also discuss techniques for enlisting and educating staff and for assessing success. The final chapter suggests about 50 themes for library displays and the collections (not specific titles) and props that should accompany each. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
