Here are resources from the Graphic Design & Marketing Your Library Effectively workshop, which was held March 15, 2016 at the Ripon Public Library.
Marketing Your Library: How to do it Right!, presented by Tina Babler
- Sources / businesses / libraries / books that Tina follows to keep up on marketing trends:
- Red Shoes PR blog (Local PR firm): If you visit their social media, they are constantly updating their audience with great marketing information.
- Anythink Libraries: They are doing wonderful things with merchandising and marketing. They have a merchandising guideline handout available on their website that we have looked at and are starting to adapt our materials to match.
- Topeka & Shawnee County Library: They are really great at keeping their message simple and interesting. I would suggest signing up for their email updates.
- I look at places like forbes.com to see trends and find information too.
- Start a Revolution, Stop Acting Like a Library by Ben Bizzle is a great book. It’s a quick read, it took me about an hour last summer sitting on my deck soaking in the sun. (Find the book in the WALS catalog, InfoSoup, and WorldCat.)
