Being tasked with a job as important as marketing the library you love and care for can be an intimidating and somewhat daunting proposition. That word—marketing—means so many different things to different people. In Ned Potter’s book The Library Marketing Toolkit, the complex process is divided up into distinct and manageable interdependent projects. I took my time reading this book, taking notes along the way, investigating the supplemental web material provided, and sharing certain passages ...more

Many practical tips on each chapter. The case studies are various and helpful. Contains up-to-date advices on new technologies.

3.5 stars. Useful for people unfamiliar with library marketing or marketing in general, suitable to newcomers as well as those who are old hands at library work. Some of the information regarding various tools is a little dated due to the rapidly changing nature of social technologies, but on the whole it does spur one to be brave, to try new things, and to market the whatsit out of libraries.

A slim volume that is packed with all kinds of information on how to market a library in our technology-driven world. The sections on social media are quite strong, particularly as many of the lessons relating to social media are applicable for libraries of any size. The sections devoted to physical spaces are interesting and inspiring, but they may be out of reach for libraries with limited budgets and space.

I had high hopes for this book after I read the introduction, but then the author just focused on case studies and interviews without coming up with his own ideas.
