Week Six Prompt:
I have come up with an innovative way to promote romance books in the library. It is a little bit risque, but hear me out... a Fifty Shades of Grey display! This would be a great time to do one because the second movie was just released and everyone is excited about it again. But this would not be just any run of the mill, throw books on a table display. For this display, I plan on taking over one of the study rooms, blacking out the windows, and decorating it completely in red, like the "Red Room of Pain." Inside would be books that are recommended if you enjoyed Fifty Shades. Maybe "sexy" music or the soundtrack would be playing. I initially thought that you should show your card to enter the room, but that might discourage nervous patrons. So instead, I think there would be signs outside the door stating that you should be 18 to enter, enter at your own risk, etc. There wouldn't really be anything overtly inappropriate in the room, but the mystery of what is inside would be intriguing to patrons and maybe they'll check out a book or two.
