Thriving on a Dime Part 2 - Displays & Visual Appeal

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

While absolutely nothing is free, we’re about to show you how your library – any size, any type – can create enticing, artistic displays and marketing campaigns on a shoestring budget. In fact, we bet we can work shoestrings into a stellar book display! Participants will leave with concrete examples and step by step instructions for project implementation as well as an extensive resource list. Beyond this, participants will learn how to think about their existing resources and tools differently, finding new life in items already in their libraries, closets, and garages. This way of thinking can apply to any library, regardless of size, location, and budget. We don’t offer one answer for one problem; we encourage creative thinking when approaching your unique situation. Small group brainstorming and sharing will follow a formal presentation. The group-generated ideas will be documented and shared after the session. While no project is without its price tag, we will show you how to reinvigorate your library’s presence, engage your students and patrons, and “Thrive on a Dime”.
