Meet Janet M. and Publicity/Marketing

Graphic Design

Hello, my name is Janet and I am the Library’s Publicity Clerk. Over the 20 years that I have been doing this job, the work has changed a lot. The biggest difference is that I was the entire marketing department when I started, but over time I have been joined by three Library Technicians and we are supervised by the Marketing Manager. I love collaborating with the other members of the Marketing team, sharing ideas and solving problems together.

My main job is to create posters, brochures, signs and advertisements—anything that is printed. I also write press releases for the local newspaper announcing new additions to the Library’s collections or changes to Library service.

There have been many exciting changes to the Library since I started working here: a brand-new City Centre branch, a massive renovation to the Poirier branch, the introduction of the Innovation Hub and Digitization Station, the addition of lendable technology (Spheros, Ozobots, Launchpads, binoculars & telescopes), online databases, and so much more. As the Library has grown, so have our marketing efforts, as we attempt to share all that the Library has to offer with everyone in the community.
