Steal this idea: Best of lists
Everyone loves lists. Just look at any magazine cover, Pinterest feed or popular blog post. They all snag readers with “Top 10 Solutions for…” and “7 Easy Ways to…” lists.

Your library’s integrated library system (ILS) and circulation data offer great resources for creating lists your patrons will love.
