Looking for an frugal way to show your library love? For National Library Week we made up blank sheets labeled "Why Do You Love Your Library: Tell Us in Six Words or Less OR Draw a Picture" and handed them out to patrons and staff. Responses were pinned to a bulletin board placed near the front entrance of the library. I also scanned many of the responses and put the images on our Facebook page. This is a great way to engage patrons and get your staff involved too!

If you are planning on spending a little money on marketing materials, consider something practical and stylish...such as well designed tote bags! Our bags were a group effort, with the idea for the design (icons of services offered at the library) put together by our marketing team. We opted to purchase these from a local company versus going through a big retailer, and actually saved a lot of money on shipping & handling. We hand the bags out at orientation events and also sell them for just $1.00 at the circulation counter. The best part about these bags is that students REALLY use them (I've seen students carrying these at the grocery store and other local shops).

Check out the blog posting here. I've also scheduled an "I Love Libraries" open mic for April. I'm curious to hear what your library does to celebrate National Poetry Month and National Library Week. Please share your ideas!
