Display: Smallville Reads

Melanie Green, owner of Bluebird Books in Hutchinson, KS, has found a way to combine marketing with community support. “Hutchinson proudly claims to be Smallville, the home of Superman. We have a festival every June to celebrate it,” she explains. “We used the Smallville theme when designing our children’s summer reading program.”

Green created a flying books display, and partnered it with the slogan: Be a hero. Read.

She also used the images in social media, using the WordSwag app to superimpose a message on top of the photos. “I have found Wordswag to be a pretty nifty little tool for just such applications,” Green says. “Plus it’s fun too!”

All of the images are below. And if you’d like to see display images from other bookstores, visit the Books & Whatnot Display Gallery.
