Hello, everyone.   Here's one important item that should be added to the list of 32 items that can be found in a library brochure (I've also added it to the list below:

Library Mission/Vision Statement

BTW, some of you have asked for the URL to the brochure that listed the top 10 reasons to use the library:
http://www.mlanet.org/pix/nmlm_07/large/valnet.jpg
However, I suggest checking out all of the library brochures listed on MLA's Creative Promotions brochures website (http://www.mlanet.org/resources/nml-month/), as some of them, such as http://www.mlanet.org/pix/nmlm_07/large/cm_research_2.jpg also offer additional compelling reasons to use the library and the unique and skilled services that the librarians provide.



Some of you also wanted me to forward the brochures I had gotten.  I can't do so because some libraries wished to keep their brochure private.  However, I will post to the lists again, asking for the URLs of their library brochures or contact info of those willing to email their brochure.

Take care,

Tanya

Subject: Library brochures?

***cross-posted, please feel free to repost***

Hello, everyone.  I need to do a tri-fold brochure to summarize and promote our library and was wondering if someone had their brochure that they’d like to share.

So far, I found one site for school libraries http://lmnet.wikispaces.com/Library+Brochures that has a few brochures that are giving me some good ideas, such as http://rhsweb.org/library/pdf/Parent_pamphlet2007.pdf  and of course, the winners of MLA’s Creative Promotions brochures: http://www.mlanet.org/resources/nml-month/   (BTW, the 2009 NLM poster for National Medical Librarians month looks great.)

I greatly appreciate your ideas, and I will summarize to the lists.

Take care,

Tanya
