Say Cheese Results Now Available

The cheese carvings are complete; photos have been taken and uploaded to the Say Cheese Flickr group; press releases publicizing Wisconsin Libraries Say Cheese! A Day in Pictures have been sent statewide to over 230 print and online newspapers, 18 television stations, 12 radio stations, to state and national news services, consumer and public policy specific trade magazines, periodicals, and online sources;  announcements are being prepared to send to state government officials (incumbent and newly elected) ---  NOW it’s time to say “thank you” to the Wisconsin libraries who participated in this year’s Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries event, Wisconsin Libraries Say Cheese! A Day in Pictures.

When the Say Cheese initiative was first implemented last year by the WLA Foundation’s Campaign Action Committee, it was envisioned as a fun, affordable, flexible, simple tool to give Wisconsin libraries the opportunity to visually reinforce to their library funders and patrons the variety of resources, services, programs, and activities available at their library each and every day.

We hope that Wisconsin librarians will benefit from their Say Cheese participation -- perhaps using some of the promotional suggestions found on the Say Cheese website  or developing other creative techniques to make this program an effective way to promote their libraries.
