Too much on your plate….
with no time to think about
What if you had a
Marketing / PR / Fundraising
on your staff….
but NOT on your payroll?
With Public Library Support Group, you do….and lots of it is FREE!

Patron Communication

How often do you currently communicate with your patrons? When was the last time you sent library users an interesting article, a recipe from a new cookbook at the library, or a book review? Of course, sending each patron an individual postcard, or even an email, would take hours, if not days. Unless…


A newsletter is a time-honored, consistent way to keep in contact with your patrons (and top of mind). Bring it up-to-date by delivering yours through email. Your “Bestseller” subscription to PLSG gives you pre-written newsletters you can customize as much--or as little--as you want.

Book Clubs

A book club is one way to really get your patrons talking—with each other, and with you. But can you really host a weekly book club? Do you have space in the branches? Can your patrons, with their own busy lives, attend at a specific day and time?

Fund Raising Tools

Budget cuts are an old story – but very real nonetheless. Additional revenue would be wonderful, and would enable your library to get so much more done. But without someone on staff to handle full-time fundraising, can you really get sponsors and donations?
