This two-day program will provide working librarians with the skills and knowledge they need to effectively market the library’s programs and services. The program is interactive and it includes a variety of group exercises based on a case study about a medium-sized county library with multiple branches. Using the same case study throughout the training will give participants an opportunity to apply what they are learning in a practical way in the “real” library – and to see the effects of the decisions they make throughout the two-day program.

Intended audience: Public library directors, managers and other with marketing responsibilities or an interest in marketing.
