Hello friends and colleagues,

As we move into fall, business is starting to return to a "new normal," and that means more training and professional development needs for libraries and other community-serving organizations.

Even as my clients have adjusted their operations due to COVID-19, I've adjusted my training topics to meet their needs. My experience with crisis communications, funding reductions, health and safety concerns, and marketing during unusual circumstances, is all coming in handy during this time. 

I also have enjoyed seeing friends and colleagues who are experts in diversity and social justice bringing their expertise and experience to the forefront to meet the needs of our country right now. One such colleague is Kim Crowder, who I've known for many years. Check out her website to learn more about what she does. 

I hope that you are successfully navigating your new normal, and that you are healthy and safe during this time.

Library Marketing and Communications:
Strategies to Increase Relevance and Results

Good marketing and communications practices are more important to libraries today than ever before. In my new book, I talk about how important it is to persuasively communicate your library's relevance as a key strategy to ensure your long-term sustainability. I also talk about ways that you can maximize your marketing and communications efforts. This book will encourage you to shake up your marketing and communications approach, helping you implement real changes for lasting results.

White Paper: Navigating Unstable Library Funding
in a Challenging World

This whitepaper originated as a series on my blog, The series shared experiences and lessons learned from serving as the marketing and communications director for a large public library during the 2008 recession and resulting library funding cuts.
My hope is that this whitepaper will help libraries prepare for and respond to funding challenges and economic challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
