Idea Exchange: Adding Value to Services

Booksellers are a well of knowledge, and that knowledge has value that can be monetized. In this discussion, booksellers share how they’ve profited off of charging for book clubs, storytimes, events, and library curation/consultation fees. Discussion will also include the impact on business when bookstores begin to cash in on their brilliance.

Panelist: Heather Hebert, Children's Book World (Haverford, PA)
