Case Memorial Library Promotes Show your Card Program

Want an easy (and free!) way to connect with Orange residents?  Join the Case Memorial Library's "Show Your Card" promotion.

For the first year, the Case memorial Library is parntering with the community businesses for a promotional event, "Show Your Card."  It's simple:  you decide on something you'd like to offer Orange residents who show their library card when making a purchase -- a discount, a small gift, a free service, anything that you think will generate traffic to your business--and the library will pulicize your participation and provide your business with promotional materials to display at no additional cost to you.

Library cardholders are reminded of the benefits of having a library card and your business has the opportunity to generate awareness and increase your customer base.

It's a win-win promotion!

If your business is interested in particpating, or you would like more information, please contact Meryl Farber, Library Director, (203) 891-2170, mfarber@lioninc.org or Rebecca Harlow, Head of Reference and Adult Services, (203) 891-2170, rharlow@lioninc.org by July 30, 2012.
