Book Table

Bookstores pile books on tables in the centre of the store with tremendous sales success – far more sales go from the tables than the shelves. When libraries try to emulate this, they discover it’s not so easy to make an attractive display when you don’t have multiples of crisp new copies. Our Book Table helps libraries to adapt the bookstore approach to get the same spectacular results.

The Table has built-in height to showcase individual titles so you don’t need multiple copies to make an attractive book display. The three shelves are angled to present the books at just the right height to offer irresistible temptation. It’s easy to merchandise and always looks attractive; books can’t fall over and look untidy. Put books two-deep and you buy staff the time to refill when the front one is taken. Use this table like a bookstore would - place it in the centre of a high traffic area and watch those circulation figures go up!

+  Set of two includes one Books to Go and one Discover graphic insert Easily inserted into the sign holder on the Book Table Image printed on both sides Can be used as mini-posters in their own right Graphic Inserts for Book Table

Two great images to use for promotions in your Book Table. Both of them can be used with a wide range of titles; you don’t need a specific themed display, just gather some books with great-looking covers and use these headers to draw attention to them.

“Books to go” is for everyone in a hurry – and that’s most of us these days. Just like coffee to go, this sends a message that you can grab what you need quickly and easily and be on your way. “Discover” is a beautiful image to celebrate the excitement of discovery that awaits in the books on display.
