Beyond Books Sales: Practical Ideas for Raising Funds for Your Library

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 ♦ 2 pm Eastern ♦ 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/beyond-book-sales.html

It's time to take a fresh look at ideas for raising funds for your library. Although book sales have been a standard library fundraiser, they take a lot of time and effort, with dwindling returns on investment in recent years. Whether considering new types of events or tried-and-true activities, you’ll learn the "12 Must-Know Facts About Fundraising." Find out how to assess your library’s capacity for fundraising, enlist the right volunteers, engage the community, and create a sustainable plan to boost your library’s bottom line and raise visibility. With this strong foundation, libraries of any size can move into new directions to grow support for their libraries.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.
Presented by: Sue Hall, Director of Library Strategies<http://thefriends.org/consulting/>

You really can support those job-seekers.
