Reading list titles shelved together

Here’s a time-saver (not to mention a shelf-space saver), spotted at Howard County’s Miller branch.

Take those tried-and-true perennial reading list titles (Animal Farm comes to mind, also A Lesson Before Dying, Things Fall Apart, Night, A Tale of Two Cities) that we keep multiple copies of just for summer, and give them their own little fixture. Here they’ve used paperback carousels, but a batch of dumps might work well too.

You can save a bunch of shelf space by keeping your multiples of Watership Down and 1984 off the regular fiction shelves.

During the summer, it’s one-stop shopping for the folks who come in clutching their lists, and you could even wheel the whole unit to some inconspicuous place once the summer reading season is over.

Use your wire shelving to store and display manga. The uniform sizes and long runs of similar spines mitigate the visual confusion created by the open structure of the shelves.
