I know I seem to be writing a lot about marketing your library lately, but there have been so many good ideas that will help make the library more enticing and make it easier for our patrons to use.
I just came across this webpage about using bookstore design in your library. The staff recommendations idea is great and also the tips re where to locate your displays (especially the statistic that items displayed near the front desk can circulate up to 1000 times more than items on the shelf!), lit displays and colors to use on signage.
And while we’re at it, for all you libraries with a Facebook presence but no My Space one, looks like you made the cool choice (at least according to those arbiters of hip – college students)!
