Shelf-Sitters That Rock!

Summer is upon us, we here at the 5 Minute Librarian would like to help make things a little easier for you while you're trying to plan, promote, and implement programs, paint windows, take photos, encourage a love of literacy, and generally manage the hectic pace that accompanies summertime in the libraries. How can we help? With some easy displays!

We know you loved the shelf-sitters and staff pick bookmarks we wrote about before, so we decided to jazz them up with this summer's theme: LIBRARIES ROCK! Of course, all these images are copyrighted, and must be used within the set guidelines.


A shelf-sitter is a little piece of advertising material that sits right on your shelf with a book. You simply cut out around the design, fold down the remainder of the paper, and the tag sticks up in front of the book you want to highlight. These are great for displays, and also work well in the stacks, where you can call addition to particular titles with ease. Just right-click and save the files to print.


You can fill out the bookmark and leave it on the shelf where it lives, or on a display. Alternately, leave a small stack of these next to your book return, and let your patrons fill one out when they find a book they think really rocks. (Yes, let them do the work for you!)


And, of course, no display is complete without signs. Here are a few simple variations on our theme to make things easy for you.

Please let us know if you enjoyed these! You can comment here on the blog, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter.
