Building Bridges to Business in Barrie

  • slides are here
  • have a dedicated biz lib position (created in 2002)
  • librarians as info brokers
  • read papers to become familiar with local biz issues
  • economic downturn = library upturn
  • outreach for inreach...go out so they'll come in
  • talk about BENEFITS of your library, not features
  • have a tag line/elevator talk..."this is YOUR tax dollars at work" "best deal in town"...might as well come and use it
  • connect with other biz libs
  • subscribe to the "Dear Reader" biz book club (good idea to promo on our biz page!!)
  • net orking and netWEAVING
