Whether we admit it or not, we all follow seasons and patterns. The more we are aware of these the better we can prepare for those which will reoccur and--perhaps--make the next time a bit better. With that in mind (and a little more free time on ourhands) my marketing colleague and I chose more "prizes" for our publicity campaigns, especially since we will be building a new library. Now I know, other areas of our college will be starting to prepare, but we want some little ideas. We've tentatively chosen a theme-- 30 spaces or less--build a place@ your library. Although, we went to here for prizes, I also saw a great idea at Marketing Treasures newsletter. We are too small and too limited to afford the limit required for creating an engraving on a prize. But attaching a small card with our name to key chains and can also create awareness.
A new month is coming. Ok, not that new, but since Deaf Awareness Month occurs in the middle of two months, you may wish to plan for a display of materials or a short program.
