Hi Public Librarians,
I’m a librarian at BCR and have worked for a number of years in adult services at public libraries. I recently started a blog for public librarians - “The Librarian is IN” - see http://blogs.bcr.org/publiclibraries/ I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to hear any comments, suggestions for topics, ideas etc. since this is a blog for you!
Marion, Iowa (February 2, 2009) - Book sales are excellent fund-raising events for local libraries especially during tough economic times when people are searching for bargains. A new website, BookSaleList.com, has been launched to help libraries promote book sales and bookstores.
"We've worked hard to design a website that is not only easy to use, but will offer a significant value to book sale organizers. BookSaleList will not only promote your book sale or store, but it can give you a place, in addition to your website, to spotlight your library or Friends group. In addition, we have a strategic growth plan that includes improvements and additional features. We're also dedicated to search engine optimization, so that when visitors search for book sales, they find you," stated web designer Jared Martinez.
Through a nonprofit, TechSoup, public libraries can receive brand-new software donated by top companies for use on public access computers. For example, Microsoft Office Pro 2007 is available for a $20 admin fee or Vista for a $10 admin fee.
Not only can you get donated software, you can get articles, a community forum, free webinars and more. Attend this webinar and learn how your library can benefit from everything that TechSoup has to offer.
