How do you respond when patrons ask why there aren’t more e-books at the library? It’s not an easy question. Turn your (and your patron’s) frustration into action. Attend PLA’s and learn about two creative e-book campaigns initiated by libraries, as well as a comprehensive communications template kit to help you develop your own! You’ll find new strategies for reaching out to your community members not only to explain why libraries have limited e-book collections but also to enlist their help in improving e-book access.
Featured content will include:
- Kansas State Library’s Facebook campaign
- Pierce County (Wash.) Library System’s grassroots postcard and e-mail campaign
- Free E-Book Media and Communications Kit developed by the ALA Digital Content and Libraries Working Group
