Deadline to register for November 6 media training workshop is Friday

Time is running out to secure a seat for this great opportunity to learn valuable tools to make your library even more visible in your community. The deadline to register is Friday, October 31.

On November 6, 2014, the Cooperative Directors Association, the Library of Michigan, and the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS) will co-host a program instructing and preparing librarians on interacting with the media.

For the low cost of $70/person (including lunch), you will work with public relations expert, Robert Kolt, of Kolt Communications, and his team on skills such as talking to the media, what to say and when to say it.

Head of the journalism faculty at Wayne State University and Michigan Radio’s senior political analyst Jack Lessenberry will present on how to develop win-win relationships with local journalists. Reporters, now more than ever, need trained librarians to help teach them how much and in how many ways they can help reporters do their jobs. Librarians need reporters help in promoting local events and services.

This program will be held at the Meijer branch of the Jackson District Library. For more information and to register, go to the Media Coaching for Librarians events page.

This project is supported (in part) by the Library of Michigan with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
