August Content Calendar

Each month I offer a content calendar with odd holidays and celebrations. These are meant to be sparks to help when it comes to planning events, displays, sales, and social media content.

For example, August 3 is National Watermelon Day. This day could be celebrated with a reading of The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli, a watermelon feed and a seed spitting contest. (Or do we only do that in Kansas?)

Bad Poetry Day on August 18 could make for a fun open-mic event and poetry book sale.

On Senior Citizen’s Day (August 21), celebrate early in the day Senior’s Sale and a special talk showcasing the services you offer, like audio rental, large print books, Grandparent shopping services, etc.

And August 9 is Book Lover’s Day. That one has me stumped.

Download the August Content calendar here. Be sure to fill in your local and bookstore events, and look to it whenever you need inspiration.
