Introducing the new LibraryAware homepage
We created LibraryAware for busy library professionals like you who need to promote your collections, build audiences for your programming, and keep patrons informed about what’s happening at the library. With that goal in mind, and in response to feedback from customers, we’re introducing a new homepage for LibraryAware next month.

With my people at ALAMW19
It’s been a minute since I worked in a library but when I go to a conference, it doesn’t take me long to get back into full-on librarian mindset –trolling publishers’ booths for hot-n-fresh ARCs, failing to resist picking up cool swag, and fangirling over authors.

Steal this idea: Best of lists
Everyone loves lists. Just look at any magazine cover, Pinterest feed or popular blog post. They all snag readers with “Top 10 Solutions for…” and “7 Easy Ways to…” lists. So why not create lists like this customized for your library, featuring the books your patrons checked out the most this year? Or how about the books highest in demand, determined by your holds lists? Your library’s integrated library system (ILS) and circulation data offer great resources for creating lists your patrons will love.

Steal this idea: Express Checkout Promotions
Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, is one of three recipients of the Engaging Readers at Your Public Library grant. Earlier this year, CKPL completed a four-month campaign to engage patrons and energize staff in reading, watching, learning and playing with CKPL’s collections. We recently chatted with Manager of Support Services Heidi Wyma about one of the innovative ideas her library tested during this campaign that you might want to try at your library.
