There are many ways to market a library’s fiction collection. Here are three ways to market a library’s fiction books:
1. Create a reading challenge – Promote a genre through a reading challenge program and then reward those who met the challenge. Reading challenges are fun and it’s a way to introduce people to new books they may not have read otherwise. The reading challenge is also a way to have all different ages and ability levels participate in the same challenge.
2. Social media/web page – Update social media pages often with information with whatever is being promoted to entice users.
3. A read-a-like display – I found this idea on Pinterest and I love this idea! Using popular, well known books, the library can display lesser known read-a-likes to get users to try something new. Each shelf could focus on a different popular book with lesser known titles.
