Lisa Williams from the Moline Public Library offers this creative promotional idea:
“We just started using 12 inch digital photo frames with a slide show to promote all the services and programs we offer. IT Coordinator, Bryon Lear, came up with the idea after some of us had batted around a TV or large computer screen to promote programs. He figured it was a cost effective alternative and easy to do. We have 12 inch frames with usb ports. We create content in Publisher in landscape layout and plug in the usb and use the remote to do a slideshow.”
This idea has applications outside of the library has well! For example instead of taking several flyers to put up at a community fair or event – simply use the frame loaded with all your current events and promotions. Thanks Lisa for sharing this great idea!
