Johnson County Public Library Kickstarting Community Outreach with Scarlett Marketing
What do you think about when someone says the word “library”? I think it is fair to say that most people would answer by saying: “books,” “reading,” “library cards,” “computers,” “movies,” or something of the sort. If you ask James Ritchie at the Johnson County Library, he describes their purpose as, “improving the quality of life for people and helping them with their informational needs.”
Outside of housing hundreds of books and movies in their building, the library also has several computers that patrons are allowed to use, the staff is always there to help whether it is looking for a job or learning how to use the computer, and the list goes on. The library also regularly hosts a variety of events at the library that cater to all ages from author book talks to a storytime set up just for kids.
