Figuring out where to host the release party for your novel is one of the first steps when planning such a wonderful party. One lovely choice is your local library. Loved for not only all the knowledge and information one can find in a library, the ambiance of a library is the calm in the storm. Relaxing and quiet, if you desire a place to sit and enjoy a good book, settling into a super comfy library chair is the perfect place for you.
Aside from the thousands of books and magazines you can find in your library, they also host parties, wedding showers, baby showers, and you guessed it, novel release parties. So what are the pros of using a library for such an important event in your life?
As with hosting your party at a book store or your home, hosting at a library is free. Nothing is better than free when you are footing the bill for your party.
Being a part of and supporting your local library is always a good thing. Not to mention, you’re helping build your local community and are encouraging your fellow neighbors to join in on your love of the written word. Libraries provide people with unlimited amounts of books, with a small membership fee, giving children and adults alike, the chance to go amazing adventures.
Since you know everyone walking into the library is looking for the next great read on their ‘to read’ list, it’s highly likely they would be interested in your novel.
GOOD PUBLIC PROMOTION
Because local libraries are always looking for good community promotion, you can be sure that they will promote your event. Newspapers, flyers, ads online, and spreading the word on social media, you name it and it’s more than likely how they will help you promote it. Of course, you should also do promotion for yourself. Don’t rely on just the library.
