Library Workshop: Strategic Marketing Thinking for Librarians & Why your future depends on it!

Libraries have everything they need. The problem is that they don't market it well while their competitors do. Today most libraries offer more content than ever before in history. Indeed, the average library offers today at least 10 times more content than it could 20 years ago. Yet, the winner is the World Wide Web with already 92% of college students starting their search for content in Google, Wikipedia, Facebook and YouTube.

As part of our efforts to reach out to more young Malaysians, the Perdana Leadership Foundation team conducted a one-day games-filled programme at a privately-run orphanage in Sekendi, Sabak Bernam in October 2013. The kids ranged in age from 6 years old to 16 years old, and some single Mothers were present as well. The Foundation donated a cow to the school for Eid Al-Adha as well as helped to spruce up the school’s library.
