Additional Opportunities
In addition to sponsorship, please consider the following partnership opportunities.

Cause Marketing
You can help leverage your brand for good and give back to the library. Let’s sell some bibliotheca beer or collection coffee or periodical pizza! We don’t want to “overdue” it, but let’s start a new “chapter” together and “check out” all that’s possible. Sorry, sometimes we have no “shelf” control. Examples of partnerships might include:

  • Point-of-sale: Asking customers to donate or round up during check out.
  • Purchase or action triggered donation: Buy a product and a donation is made. Or, donate a dollar for every share on social media.
  • Employee Engagement: Invite employees to give back to the library or volunteer for the festival.
  • Digital Programs: Use web or social media platforms to collect donations.

Festival Exhibitor
We have opportunities for promotion, sales and marketing, with booth spaces for publishers, community organizations, publishing services, book sellers and retailers offering gifts and products for readers. We offer table space for indie authors and creators as well. Exhibit space is 10×10’ tent and must be tied to reading. Prices are:

  • Large Corporate or Nonprofit
    (50+ employees) $500
  • Small Corporate or Nonprofit
    (50 or fewer employees) $250
