About the PR Xchange Event

The PR Xchange is a drop-in style event at the ALA Annual Conference. It will be held on Sunday June 24, 2018 at the ALA Conference Exhibit Hall, Special Events Area. It’s an exciting event where libraries across the country share their marketing ideas. View and take free copies of award-winning promotional materials from the juried PR Xchange awards, as well as promotional materials from libraries across North America. Attendees can learn how to improve their own promotional materials by talking with John Cotton Dana Award Winners, PR Xchange award winners, and other library marketing experts. Each year we invite different authors and library marketing experts, as well as John Cotton Dana Awards winners to sit at our many tables.

The PR Xchange Event and the PR Xchange Awards Competition are both overseen by the PR Xchange Committee.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
