Sponsorship Advice and Ideas for Libraries

Want to start a new project but don’t have money in the library budget? A library sponsorship may be the answer. Libraries can be a place for public-private partnerships, although clear expectations should be in place. Carrie Rogers-Whitehead secured sponsorships from Google, Coca Cola and others during her time as a librarian, and now in her new role she’s on the other side as a sponsor. She’ll share practical tips, strategies and mistakes she made along the way.

Through this webinar, you will learn: • What sponsors want from libraries • How you can find sponsors • What libraries can want from sponsors • Preparing a pitch deck and different types of sponsorships • Legal and financial considerations of sponsorships
