JLG Director of Marketing, Dawn Driscoll, met Deb Logan by chance in Denver after the ALA Midwinter Conference. Dawn soon learned that Deb works close to JLG’s headquarters in Plain City, OH. Even more amazing . . . Joel’s son was in one of Deb’s classes!
Twice a year, in April and October, we open our warehouse to librarians to shop our previously selected titles for only $5. During this two-day event, we have the privilege of hearing stories of the amazing work librarians are doing every day. One specific customer this year brought her teen advisory board along for the trip - in a school bus!
I sat down with Columbus mom blogger Julie Miller to uncover what type of library programs attract parents, discuss social media tips, and learn how to promote to bloggers. Julie is a Wooster, Ohio native, who started her career in the library world, working summers at the Wayne County Library while in college. Julie started her blog What Should We Do Today? after becoming a full-time stay at home mom, and has been featured on NBC News 4, Columbus Moms Blog, and CAP4KIDS.
