Recognize Library Marketing Excellence in 2017

estrat-gia-foco-e-assertividade-para-o-marketing--15.pngMarketing is every bit as important for public libraries as it is for-profit organizations. After all, our services are only valuable if patrons know about them. In recognition of this fact, Library Journal created its Marketer of the Year Award.

Sponsored by Library Ideas, a popular e-resource vendor, this annual honor comes with a cash prize of $2,000. Library Journal will also feature the 2017 honoree in its October 1 issue.

Criteria include a demonstrated ability to promote library services and happenings - successfully and in an innovative manner; marked improvements in library visibility in your community; and strong coalition building skills.

Nominators must include examples of their candidate’s print and digital work, an approximately 1,000-word narrative, and statistics to prove impact. Nominations from Friends of the Library are encouraged.
