Calgary Public Library does it again. Those Canadians ... they are always so creative. This time they've put their ads right in the grocery stores. Great idea!!
Erik and Jaap had told us of how DOK advertises in grocery stores as well. I so love this idea and would absolutely like to use a form of it here in NJ.If you've used creative outlets for ads, please share with us!
"Calgary's public libraries are trying to catch the attention of supermarket shoppers by placing advertisements right in with the bananas and pastrami.
New library ads have made their way into the produce and deli departments of 10 Real Canadian Superstores across the city. The slogan for the campaign is "Everything you're into," and the advertisements feature lines such as "from barbecue to bull riding" and "from ham to Hamlet."
It's a unique campaign, said April Ganger, who works with the Calgary Public Library's marketing department.
"We were trying to have that guerilla impact," she said.
"People's perceptions of public libraries is really solid and really hard to break. And we're working toward that, to try and break that. To make you re-think your library, make you think that this could be a fun place to come. And that you'd put it on your top list, and it would be something you would do. It's not just for quiet study and researching anymore. "
