Planning for Promotion


Plan church library promotion carefully. Determine the purpose and choose a theme around which to build the promotion ideas.

*** Check the church and denomination calendars for upcoming events.

*** Look at the library circulation records and check for areas that need promotion emphasis.

*** Decide what emphasis should be the basis for promotion in the library --- for example, holiday          theme, Christian growth, parenting, VBS, witnessing, etc.

*** Decide on the kind of promotion that will be most effective for the purpose.

*** Plan a schedule for promotion. Determine HOW the plans will be carried out, WHO will do                  WHAT, and WHEN it should be done.

*** The library should have a new attractive display each month in the window or on a bulletin                board. Also library information should be put in other parts of the church, and in the church              bulletin or newsletter at regular intervals.

***  Evaluate after the promotion by results and overall effect. ALWAYS thank everyone who helped         with the promotion.
