November 13, 2018 – EveryLibrary is happy to announce that NoveList, a division of EBSCO Information Services, is providing a subscription to LibraryAware to five of our 2019 library campaigns as a component of their donor support. LibraryAware helps libraries connect with their communities and keep them engaged with professionally-designed and customizable print and email templates.
EveryLibrary provides pro-bono campaign consulting services and support to libraries for their Informational Communications Campaigns. This includes assistance with message development, marketing and outreach, and community engagement.
As part of this partnership, LibraryAware is creating new, campaign-specific templates that reinforce and complement the libraries’ 2019 Informational Communication Campaigns. This offering includes full access to LibraryAware, including the award-winning NextReads newsletters, email templates, bookmarks, shelf talkers, flyers and more. The libraries will be able to use LibraryAware to support their Informational Communication Campaign, as well as to promote books, programs, and other library resources.
“High quality messaging and design is so important in an Info-Only campaign”, says John Chrastka, EveryLibrary’s executive director. A library’s leadership team needs to engage the public and other organizations in the community early about what is on the ballot. In the lead-up to Election Day, it is critically important for the library to share about its relevance, its services, and its own impact with the wider community. For the Info-Only campaign itself, “having these customizable communications resources from LibraryAware will help our libraries communicate more effectively about what is on the ballot, and what it means to the community if it passes or fails” adds Chrastka.
“NoveList and EBSCO support EveryLibrary’s mission of building voter support for libraries,” says Danielle Borasky, Vice President of NoveList. “Through these LibraryAware-supported campaigns, we aim to help libraries communicate more effectively in order to build and sustain community engagement.”
