Partnerships Marketing Toolkit

Through partnerships with organizations across the state, Georgia’s public libraries provide families with educational and recreational opportunities to spend time together while saving money.

With a free library card, patrons can check out passes for free and reduced-cost entry to places like Zoo Atlanta, Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites, The Center for Puppetry Arts and more. Our partnerships loosely fall into three categories: loans of materials or exhibits, reading challenges, and library programming opportunities.

Use these marketing messages, graphics, and promotional materials to promote our library partnerships across the state.
