CHICAGO — As libraries evolve to keep pace with the digital world, new approaches to marketing are increasingly necessary. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), a division of ALA, will present a free webinar featuring award-winning marketer Ben Bizzle from 1 - 2 p.m. Central time on Jan. 21. This is part in an ongoing series of webinars featuring thought leaders from a wide variety of libraries.

Bizzle is a 2013 Library Journal Mover&Shaker in marketing, founder of LibraryMarket.com, and author of the book "Start a Revolution: Stop Acting Like a Library," to be released in Jan., 2015 through ALA Editions. As director of technology for the 2013 John Cotton Dana Award winning Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library, Bizzle has utilized over 20 years of technology and business experience to meet the challenges facing libraries in the 21st century. With an emphasis on virtualizing resources and extending the library’s reach beyond the library itself, he has developed a number of cost effective ways to enhance the patron experience and increase community awareness of the value of public libraries.
