I want to create an event or book carousel or digital signage

Want to promote your events and books with event carousels on your website or digital signage on your library screens? It’s easy with the thousands of widget templates in LibraryAware.

What the heck is a widget? It’s a virtual container that holds one or more rotating images that you can embed on the web via a snippet of code. The widget code can be added to most webpages, including blogs, or display screen software that accepts image URLs.

Display a book carousel (newsletter widget) on your website

Use one or more of the NextReads newsletters or your own custom book newsletter to create a book carousel on your website. Show one book at a time or several. Choose how fast the covers move and where they link to when clicked. It’s all up to you!
