Partner With the Local Library to Promote Your Book

Presented by Jennifer Alexander

Wednesday, May 10, 2023:

Join the St. Louis Publishers Association on May 10 and learn how to “Partner With the Local Library to Promote Your Book,” presented by Jennifer M. Alexander, a Collection Development Specialist for St. Louis County Library. 

How can you partner with the public library to promote your book? Public library patrons are a community of avid readers. The same people who choose what books land on library shelves may have some good tips for you on how to publicize your books. Join us for a discussion of current practices in the public library and some insights on what drives popularity. In the last few years, we have seen big changes in publishing, bookstores, and libraries. We will talk about publishing house mergers, changing reading habits, and of course, TikTok and Colleen Hoover.

Jennifer Alexander is a Collection Development Specialist for St. Louis County Library. She has been with the library since 2005, working as an assistant branch manager and a reference librarian before joining collection development in 2010. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Dallas and a Master of Arts degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Missouri.
