How to promote the classics in your library
The Hobbit is coming out! We get to return to Middle Earth and the genius of Peter Jackson! I'm so super excited. Can you tell? Sometimes it takes a movie coming out to really appreciate and promote a classic, but there are ways we can promote literary gems throughout the year.
I'll be the first to admit, I don't really like to read classics. But the thing is...I can be persuaded, enticed, seduced into reading them with the right promotion and some clever spins. So why not take the time to put clever spins on books not moving off the shelf for teens?
Our video gives you just a few ideas, but we'd love to hear more! Do you do something special to push classics in your library? Got a special program or display that has worked in the past? Let us know!
