In cooperation with the Library Resource Group (LibraryWorks), IBPA sends dedicated eBlasts containing only fifteen (15) member titles to a select group of 5,000 librarians.
For this program, IBPA designs a targeted eBlast that includes your book's cover image, a 50-word description, wholesaler information, and a unique, lead-generating link of your choosing.
LibraryWorks then pulls a list of 5,000 librarians based on the criteria of each eBlast. Launching quarterly (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), there are six categories of IBPA Library eBlasts:
Elementary School Librarians
Middle and High School Librarians
College and Academic Librarians
Public Library Children's and YA Librarians
Public Library Adult Librarians - Nonfiction Focus
Public Library Adult Librarians - Fiction Focus
The librarians who receive these eBlasts are all LibraryWorks subscribers who have provided information (location, branch, position, etc...) that allows LibraryWorks to organize them into the groups above.
Every librarian who clicks on your cover image or the title's MORE button is logged by LibraryWorks. This means that approximately 3 weeks after the e-blast is sent, IBPA receives a spreadsheet with that information. We share this list of inquiries with you, allowing you to follow up with the librarians who expressed an interest in your title. It's a powerful way to grow your email marketing list!
The price for the Library Market eBlast is $199 per title.
