Best Library Display for Paperback Books

Revolving Book Display Holder and RackDo you run a library and need a good way to display the paperback books? This may be a public, private, university or public school library. In all these institutions, space is often an issue. So what are your options for displaying paperback books?

While hardbacks are often the books of choice in many libraries, paperback books are often the only option. While paperbacks can be displayed on a wooden book shelf, there are other more effective ways to properly display paperback books while freeing up space for the hardback books. Here are a few options you may want to consider.

Best Library Display for Paperback Books

1. Easel-Style Book DisplayEasel Book Racks – These types of book racks use a tripod design and are extremely easy to set up and deploy. While a leg or stand holds the book rack up, the front of the easel display has a series of book pockets where paperbacks can be placed.  These types of book racks are highly portable and are easy to move from one area to another.

2. Revolving and Rotating Book DisplaysRevolving / Rotating Book Racks – This style of book rack is very common in libraries and makes great use of limited space. The footprint on these book racks is small, yet many are capable of holding 50 plus books at a time. We currently offer a model capable of holding up to 84 books. Because these book holders rotate, it is easy to view and access all literature.

3. Wall-Mounted Book DisplayWall-Mounted Book Racks – This type of book rack, often in a zig-zag format, is mounted to the side of a wall. This style of book rack makes books easy to see and access. Mounting these racks to a wall is very easy. This does take up valuable wall space, however, and is probably one of the lesser used designs in libraries.

Notice a trend with the paperback book racks? Most paperback book displays are made from black wire. This is because wire displays are durable, cheap and make it easy to see the stored contents. Wire book racks are commonplace in libraries and book stores.
