Library Storytelling: How to Find Memorable Library Stories to Use for Marketing and Promotions 
You know the power of storytelling. After all, you work in a building where you are surrounded by some of the best stories in the world. So why is it so hard for libraries to tell their own stories? It's because we often get stuck at the very first step in the process: finding the right stories to share with our community. The quest for library stories that have emotion and a compelling story arch perfect for library advocacy is more difficult than it sounds. But, in this session, you'll learn how a good story becomes good marketing, as well as practical tips to find stories that you can use for advocacy and promotion. Full course description and purchasing options.
