Template media release for Library Lovers' Day February 14

Download the media release 

This media release is designed to provide some basic content if you intend issuing a statement about your library’s activities on Library Lovers’ Day.

Date of issue is recommended on Monday 5 February 2018 to give local media a chance to write a story. Best to aim for a preview story because generally on Saturdays some newsrooms are closed and others operate with a significantly reduced staff.

It is a suggested guide only  feel free to amend and adapt the copy so it works with your library's event.

Social media

All posts and tweets will be coming from ALIA Facebook page and Twitter account (@ALIANational).

ALIA would like to create excitement on social media regarding Library Lovers’ Day. If tweeting, don’t forget to use the hashtag #librarylove. ALIA will be aiming to re-tweet your tweets.

ALIA will be compiling a wrap up of the week (see 2016 wrap up) and publishing it on our website, so if you have an event, please send us:

  • Some information and photos by email (media@alia.org.au).
  • A link from Facebook.
  • Any coverage from local media. We will be keeping our eye out for stories but we would hate to miss anything, so please send through any coverage  the URL of the story would be great.
