As you’ll have gathered libraries are using their bookmarks to promote many services –
from children’s Bounce and Rhyme Times to Local Archives, Family History to Internet Resources, Online Catalogues to Phone Apps and News Subscriptions…
But the ever popular Opening Hours bookmark is one that’s always well used, especially when services change and rearrange provision.
On the right you see our design for Rutland Libraries’ Opening Hours Bookmarks, where we’ve also used a simple word-search puzzle to engage with the audience. Everyone enjoys a simple puzzle and this also focuses on the topic and relays information at the same time.
Library staff repeatedly tell us that one of the most popular use of library bookmarks is simply to relay important info like PIN numbers, contact details and Library Opening Hours.
Here are examples for Slough Libraries and Torbay Libraries.
- Central Bedfordshire Libraries have 13 Sites which see ~33,000 visits a fortnight.
- Havering Libraries have 10 sites which see ~75,000 visits a fortnight.
- Leicester City Libraries have 19 sites which see ~77,000 visits a fortnight.
- Dorset Libraries have 34 sites which see ~98,000 visits a fortnight.
- Darlington Libraries have just 2 sites but they see ~17,000 visits a fortnight.
