Marketing Library Services for Schoolchildren - Webinar (10/06/20)


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how schools operate, and with that, the children who have the greatest needs may be left behind. This is where libraries can step in – by offering technology and internet access, digital literacy skills, educational support, access to reading materials, and other valuable services.

In this session, we will talk about how you can use marketing strategies to identify the wants and needs of schoolchildren and their families. Then we’ll cover different strategies you can use to communicate with them about what your library has to offer in support of their needs. Finally, we’ll discuss one case study of a library-public schools partnership and how marketing contributed to its success.
