Library Marketing Training
Boost your marketing skills and confidence
Marketing is essential to connect your community with all your library offers. Except marketing wasn't covered in your MLIS program. And you're already juggling so many "other duties as assigned." Where do you even begin?
Maybe you're posting on social media. But you're not getting the results you want. Or you're creating flyers your colleagues requested. But it feels like you're on a hamster wheel churning out endless promotional materials.
If you've been thinking, "There's got to be a better way"—that's where marketing plans and strategies come in. They can guide your efforts, making the most of your limited time and budget. Plus, they can help you gain buy-in, set expectations, and measure results.
Now, you can learn fundamental marketing skills with online training on your schedule. No need to earn another degree or travel to another conference. Choose from two professional development courses available through Library Juice Academy, designed specifically for librarians and other library staff.
Let's create a more sustainable approach to marketing your library—together.

This was a good succinct, practical course. I liked that I walked away with a tangible marketing plan. Lectures were well constructed and Sara clearly knows her stuff and used helpful examples.
