How do you respond when patrons ask why there aren’t more e-books at the library? It’s not an easy question. Turn your (and your patron’s) frustration into action. Attend PLA’s free, 90-minute webinar, “E-Book Action:Inform and Inspire Your Community,” noon-1:30 p.m. Central on Tuesday, December 18, and learn about two creative e-book campaigns initiated by libraries, as well as a comprehensive communications template kit to help you develop your own! You’ll find new strategies for reaching out to your community members not only to explain why libraries have limited e-book collections but also to enlist their help in improving e-book access.
Presenters include Lisa Bitney, reading and materials director, Pierce County (Wash.) Library System; Jo Budler, state librarian, Kansas State Library; Larra Clark, director, Program on Networks, ALA Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP); Mary Getchell, marketing and community relations director, Pierce County (Wash.) Library System; Vailey Oehlke, director of libraries, Multnomah (Ore.) County Libraries.
