Telling Patrons About BookBrowse

Print Materials Web Graphics, Text Descriptions Etc.



Suggestions on how to tell patrons about BookBrowse:

  • When linking to BookBrowse from your website or emails, always remember to use your library's unique login format which enables you to link to any page on BookBrowse so that patrons can start browsing with one click, oftentimes without needing to log in. See bookbrowse.com/lib/easy for links.
  • Link to BookBrowse from your library's homepage and/or from internal pages with a graphic and text description. For example, link directly to BookBrowse's read-alikes or book club landing page; or to individual books that you wish to highlight. More about this at bookbrowse.com/lib/easy
  • Embed one or more of our widgets on your webpages. We have them for book club recommendations, read-alikes and more:
  • Encourage patrons to sign up to receive BookBrowse's twice-monthly newsletter by linking to the signup page from your emails (they can opt out with one click). See bookbrowse.com/lib/easy for your unique link.
  • Share our 2-minute animated "Introduction to BookBrowse" As with all pages, remember to use your library's unique URL available here.
  • When speaking to patrons, give them your library's easy to remember "quick link" to BookBrowse. You will find it here.
  • Ask us for free print materials. Then, pin posters on notice boards or endcaps. Place tentcards beside computer terminals, on reference or checkout desks, or on top of low bookshelves. Put bookmarks at the checkout desk, or inside reserved books; and hand out to patrons in book clubs, Friends of the Library members, and other relevant groups. Place shelf talkers on relevant book shelves, e.g. new releases and books recommended for book clubs.
  • Send a press release to local media.

We are glad to mail reasonable quantities of print materials to subscribing libraries once a year at no charge.
