How is your library participating in Power Up at Your Library Day?


The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has declared Thursday, September 15, 2016 as “Power Up at Your Library Day," and we are inviting all Texas libraries to participate in this initiative to help promote technology, innovation, and creativity in their communities. This is an opportunity for school, academic, public, and special libraries to showcase their diverse range of programs and offerings, including activities supporting STEAM-based learning, business and entrepreneurship, workforce development, and much more. 

To assist librarians throughout the state in this endeavor, TLA's PR and Marketing Committee is developing a toolkit of materials and resources that can be used for Power Up at Your Library Day. The contents of the toolkit will include: marketing and promotional tips; online resources; program ideas involving activities and celebrations focused on literacy, business, makerspaces, technology and innovation; and sample documents including a press release and survey.

The toolkit will be ready by August and available on the Powered Libraries 
website. Librarians are encouraged to use the toolkit as inspiration to create their own programs and activities in celebration of Power Up at Your Library Day. 

Other useful resources available to librarians can be found at www.poweredlibraries.org as part of the wider “powered libraries" campaign, aimed at raising awareness about libraries and energizing the profession as a whole.

Together, let's continue to push the envelope of our profession and collectively “Power Up" on Thursday, September 15th.
