TikTok Tips for Library Marketing
We frequently hear from public libraries about the challenge to spark engagement with new (and younger) members of their communities. Factor in time and budget constraints, library staff like Emily Jackson (LibraryTok influencer and Creative Marketing Manager for Dallas Public Library) are embracing a fun, free, and easy way to generate excitement: TikTok.

We were fortunate to have Emily host a webinar with us to highlight the value of using this trending social media platform to showcase your library’s people, services, and collections.

Based on this session, we put together a guide featuring “4 Ways TikTok Can Promote Your Library.”
