If you have seen some of my display posts in the past, you will know that I am a big fan of seeing what works in the retail world and adopting it in my library. Any time I can face out a book, display it on shelves, or some other option, it helps it to circ. As we know in the library world, circulation is important or items get weeded.
This inspiration came from a local bookstore (you may recognize it).
As you can see, this display looks neat. You can see all of the book covers, which makes you want to pick up a copy (or five) for purchase.
We recently "found" some shelf space and our new nonfiction moved to fill it. Since moving it here and using the face out method, I am constantly filling holes. These books are now flying off the shelves. Plus, they are right at the beginning of the nonfiction section now (rather than the easy reader area which didn't make sense).
