10 Quick and Painless Steps to Effective Advocacy for Libraries

You’ve probably heard that big budget and policy changes are afoot in Washington, DC – and perhaps that constituent voices are more important than ever.  In fact, advocacy is the buzz word du jour – but does the word itself resonate with library supporters who are not already engaged in grassroots activities?   What does “advocacy” mean, and how does it translate into action? Library trustees, members of friends groups, librarian advocates, and library supporters of all kinds can do many things to make advocacy a meaningful word. Join this webinar to learn about ten easy actions, including writing personalized letters, building coalitions in your community and even using social media outlets to help develop and deliver your message. If America’s libraries are going to survive these difficult times, we need your voice – and your action.
