We help public libraries improve their online visibility. We do it by going to the same place people try first when they need information: Google. Our product, Koios Ads, helps librarians engage with their communities by making them appear first in a Google search result.

Librarians often struggle to spread the word about premium databases, public events, and essential services. Meanwhile, people in your community ask Google for help every day with questions like:

  • What's the best way to learn Spanish?

  • Which books should I be reading with my child?

  • Where can I find help filling out this job application?

Your library has the answers, right? Koios helps you show up first in local Google searches:


search: ‘good summer reading’

You show up first.

What will we do for you?

  1. We’ll help you apply for Google Ad Grants, a free program that gives nonprofits $10,000 a month in advertising credit.

  2. We’ll set up campaigns based on your priorities. Let's say you want to promote your language-learning resources. We make your ad pop up when someone in your area types in 'learn spanish'.

  3. We’ll help you keep the grant. Google has program requirements, we keep you in compliance.

  4. We’ll optimize over time. By analyzing Google searches and marketing data, we will adjust your campaigns to better reach the people who are looking for what you have.

Free advertising? Sounds too good to be true.

We know the feeling. Seriously, though, the grant is yours, and the advertising itself is free; you pay Koios to help you use it effectively.
