How can I increase traffic at library events?

Post the event in the local newspaper calendar. Hang a large sign outside the library. Send flyers home with the local school children. If you don’t have a library website, create one that includes an event calendar. Make 1/4 page flyers that patrons can take home as a reminder. Send out emails. Create a monthly or quarterly newsletter either mailed or emailed. If your community sends out a newsletter, ask them to include library events. Ask your local newspaper to print a press release or write a story about your event.
