Clients

We didn't keep the first dollar we earned, but we still service our very first customer from when we started twenty-six years ago. How many companies can say that? What makes this and all our customer relationships work is our total focus on their success. From municipalities to not-for profits, from manufacturers to professional service firms, from entrepreneurial start-ups to established enterprises—our clients rely on us for strategic thinking, timely response, breakthrough creative, and pinpoint execution. And we deliver.

Ivy Library

Ivy Library, a division of The Ivy Group, promotes literacy, learning, and economic vitality by applying our research, planning, branding, website development, and marketing capabilities in the service of libraries. Under the direction of Nancy Davis, MLS, library consultants conduct community assessments, facilitate planning, determine campaign readiness and feasibility, and develop actionable strategic plans that make it possible for libraries to better serve their customers. Our team includes experienced facilities and technology specialists, focus group and community forum facilitators, GIS and market segmentation experts, and trend spotters. A hallmark of our work is our commitment to teaching as we consult–advancing America’s libraries by training, coaching, and mentoring library professionals. Ivy Library has served public, academic, and special libraries in communities as diverse as Brooklyn (where we conducted focus groups in five languages!) to Des Moines to San Antonio.Wherever we go, whenever we enter a library, we still feel that first thrill of discovery: libraries are the doors to the universe. It is our honor to serve them.
