READY OR NOT? WELCOME BACK!

Plan an effective marketing campaign to draw patrons back to your library.

Monday, June 7, 2021 from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m.

Even if your library never completely closed, you will want to alert your community (even those without internet access) when your building and services are back in full force.

Our guest speaker, Kathy Dempsey, is a nationally known for her knowledge of library marketing and publicity. She is the author of The Accidental Library Marketer, and a frequent speaker at ALA.

The presentation will help you plan an effective marketing campaign to draw patrons back to your libraries. This virtual session will offer guidance, ideas, and a marketing plan template that is ready to fill in and roll out.

Register by June 5th by sending an email to jcarhart@optonline.net

You will be sent a link with which to join the program.

 

This is a joint program with RASD of SCLA’s PR & Marketing Committee and the NCLA PR/Programming Division.

It is free for SCLA & NCLA members, otherwise $10. CEUs will be awarded.
