Ready to Go Book Display: Online Displays

In order to help librarians during the COVID-19 epidemic, I've decided to forgo the monthly Ready to Go Book Display and instead share with you some tips on online displays.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Highlight your collection. Right now it's especially important to highlight your digital collection that more people will be open to trying.

  • Use a template. It's fast and easy to change the color background of a template and insert a new image.

  • Use what you can. Many services offer premade social media graphics that you can use. Hoopla makes great banners that I add to my graphics.
  • Link to your resources. Make it easy for your patrons to access what you are promoting quickly and easily.
  • Add your logo so that people can identify your library.

  • Do the best you can! We are living in a world of uncertainty - try not to be too hard on yourself.
