An Infopeople Webinar

Presenters: Cheryl Lee and Sylvia Cisneros

Wanted: Children’s Librarians Who Do Library Programs! Are you:

  • Idea rich and cash poor?
  • Don’t know where to turn?
  • Looking for examples of successful programs and activities?

Corporate sponsorships are a perfect solution to gain funding for children’s programs in public libraries. In this webinar we’ll show you how to target the right companies, approach them with confidence, and get them to donate with ease.

With a little bit of planning and effort, your library can raise money, obtain food donations or gift cards, and other resources to help you run a successful children’s program.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to identify possible corporate sponsorships.
  • Know how to approach local companies with confidence.
  • Understand how to follow up with corporate sponsors.
  • Have examples of successful children’s programs funded by corporate sponsors.

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff that work with children, plan children’s programs, or are responsible for marketing and public relations
