Promote the Maine Public Library Fund Check-off in Your Community

Public libraries around the state are spreading the word about the Maine Public Library Fund income tax check-off.

Here's how your library can help:

  • Include a blurb in your library newsletter: your patrons value the benefits they receive from libraries, and the tax check-off provides them an easy way to support those services.
  • Add information to your website: you can add a page with information about the check-off or add a link to the Maine State Library informational page about the tax check-off. There are some image links at the bottom of this page that can easily be added to your site.
  • Social media updates: as tax season approaches, remind your friends and followers about the check-off options by updating your library and personal Facebook accounts.
  • Send a column in to your local weekly newspaper:  a column or press release from your library is a very effective way to reach a large audience.  If you need help with formatting, messaging, or finding contacts for your local news media, someone here at the Maine State Library would be more than happy to help you.
