Shhhh! Librarians get schooled on postal solutions

The Denver Post Office, with the assistance of the CO/WY District Marketing Department, provided a successful service to the attendees of the 2009 American Library Association convention last month.

While librarians are typically known for their propensity for using media mail, more than 40 percent of services sold were Priority Mail.

The three-day total revenue take was more than $18,000

FedEx and UPS services were available at other booths, which only served to demonstrate to customers first hand the value of shipping USPS.

We need to have more of a presence at gatherings (conventions, trade shows) where people would rather ship than carry their goods home. Tourists/visitors are not familiar with local postal locations--we need to make it convenient for them to use our services. It's so easy to pack it all in a free Priority box and have it waiting for you back at the home or office.
