Reimagining Library Card Sign-up Month
At EveryLibrary, we’ve helped several of our library partners reimagine their standard Library Card Sign-up Month by using best practices from voter registration drives and candidate interactions with voters. We know from the voter data how critical it is for those in your community who don’t use the library to see their librarians out in the community. We know from experience that volunteers can effectively represent their librarians in this kind of context, too. Taking your library card sign-ups outside the building allows you to build new relationships across neighborhoods.
