Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Libraries’ Centennial Celebration begins on January 1, 2014 – 100 years to the day that Hillsborough County’s first library, the West Tampa Branch Library, was dedicated. Centennial Celebration events and programs, which carry the theme Changing Lives, Transforming Communities, will take place throughout the library system and at other Hillsborough County locations in 2014.
Sponsorships are needed to cover costs or provide in-kind services for Centennial Celebration events and programs; advertisements; print and collateral materials to provide public information and promotion; food for the public; and more.
Packages of $100; $500; $1,000; $5,000; and $10,000 are available to address the charitable interests of local families, organizations and businesses. Custom sponsorship packages can be arranged.
Sponsors receive a variety of benefits, such as VIP access, promotional space, signage and recognition at Centennial Celebration events; their business name or logo on the Centennial Celebration Web page with a link to their business or organization website; and commemorative memorabilia.
By becoming sponsors, local organizations will honor the people and organizations that established Hillsborough County’s first library a century ago; will help call attention to the ways in which libraries have and will continue to change lives and transform communities; and will help to illustrate the ways in which libraries embrace the use of emerging technologies to help drive innovation and our local economy in the digital age.
