Poster #2 -- Marketing School Age Programming: Best Practices

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
What gives a library program value to the public? Preconceived notions of what programs entail often make it difficult for traditional PR, like flyers or social media posts, to do library programs justice. The components of quality school age programs require an understanding of the unique needs of school age families in your community, a higher level of staff communication and a new approach to customer service. Library staff is in a unique situation to “sell” something that is free. This poster will focus on the best practices for school age programming, including current trends, program descriptions, displays, and strategies to engage library staff. You will learn sales and marketing techniques to turn patron interactions into a way to showcase programming at your library.
