The CoLibri Book Covering System can be used for many applications
The CoLibri Book Covering System is great for:-
i. Library Books
Used by School Libraries to quickly and effortlessly cover their books for borrowing.
Used by School Libraries to quickly and effortlessly cover their books for borrowing. New books can arrive into the library and be catalogued, covered and out on the shelf on the same day, ready for use.
We hear over and over again about how short staffed most school libraries are these days. The CoLibri Book Covering System is like having another staff member!
A Textbook Hire system is becoming increasingly popular in schools these days, with parents struggling to find the extra money to purchase a long list of new Textbooks each year. Instead, schools are now purchasing bulk Textbooks to hire out to students for the subjects duration, and choosing to cover them with CoLibri Covers.

This makes it so easy for parents to help out with the covering process as they can produce the same high quality result on every book. Plus, parents are so much more willing to help when the job is easy, enjoyable and can ultimately save them money!
iii. Book Covering Service
If your school does require students to purchase their Books new every year, why not offer a Book Covering Service as a fundraiser for the school? Parents can have in excess of 20 Text and Exercise Books per child to cover at the beginning of each school year.
If your school does require students to purchase their Books new every year, why not offer a Book Covering Service as a fundraiser for the school? Parents can have in excess of 20 Text and Exercise Books per child to cover at the beginning of each school year, and we’re constantly told how incredibly stressful this is. Trying to battle sticky contact on the dining room table after a long day at work is any parents nightmare! In the past we have offered this service ourselves and were repeatedly told how grateful parents were to be able to hand over their Books for someone else to cover. Plus, from a schools point of view, it’s a great way for the P & F Association to easily raise some much needed funds!
2. Book Publishers/Distributors
Students and Libraries are increasingly demanding their Books be already cataloged and covered when they arrive to them. In the past, this has meant hiring large numbers of extra staff just to perform this covering service. Not only does this increase costs, but each staff member must be able to cover each book perfectly and bubble free, a skill which does not come easily to most people!
3. Public Libraries
The CoLibri Book Covering System is used in Public Libraries throughout the world as the preferred system for protecting and preserving books. Not only do the CoLibri Covers contain technical advantages over other covers on the market, but can also save public libraries hundreds of hours of staff time usually spent covering books painstakingly slowly by hand. This can either save your library money and/or allow your staff time to be better spent on expanding the services offered to the surrounding community.
4. Book Shops
Customers that purchase from Book Shops choose to own a story for their own enjoyment, to read over again and to keep on a bookshelf at home. If offered the chance, many would love to be able to protect the book with a custom made CoLibri Book Cover. Each book can be covered in the time it takes to process the purchase, while generating extra revenue for your shop and creating a point of difference from your competitors.
The CoLibri Book Cover System is small and compact, requiring minimum display and storage space for both the covers and the machine. The boxes are designed so that they can be stacked on top of each other and the covers removed as needed from the front of the boxes, fitting easily into any sized shop.
The CoLibri Book Cover System is so easy and safe to use, that even casual staff can be trained to operate this system in just five minutes. Each staff member will create the same high quality product, every time.
CoLibri Covers are 100% transparent which means customers can still clearly see the book cover and title.
By offering a Book Covering service, your store can both generate and save money in the following ways:-
- Attract new customers to your store by using the Book Covering Service as a promotional method, instead of price reduction for the books. Perhaps you could initially offer the service free for every 2 books purchased, generating new customers and introducing them to the service.
Then for their next book, they are much more likey to choose to return to your shop and be willing to pay for the Book Covering Sevice.
- Save money by covering more your expensive stock before placing it on the shelves. This way you can reduce the number of price reductions that have to make for damaged stock. In the unfortunate event of a book not selling, the cover can be easily removed before the book is returned in mint condition to the supplier for a credit.
- The CoLibri Book Cover System can open new markets. Most bookshops supply schools and libraries with books from time to time, but a Book Covering Service can turn these sporadic customers into more frequent visitors to the shop.
