Prepare Your Marketing Toolkit

Your library will be creating products to plan, inform, and market your building project.

Gather your marketing toolkit:

  • Library logo
    • jpg, png image files for internet use
    • pdf image file for print
    • small and large files
  • Designate one email address for all building project contact
  • Gather or take pictures of current library space, indoor and outdoor, preferably on a sunny day
  • Create an email list to send project updates and communications to the public: newspaper, radio, news channel, chamber, city council, city clerk, city departments, library board, friends of the library…
