Library Advocacy Done Right!

There is very little I can say about Thing 1 and Thing 2 (from The M Word).  Except, read it.  And watch the video.  And read the Power Guide.  And learn how your library can do this too.  Library boards, staff, supporters MUST speak up forcefully for their funding. There is no other way.

This, my friends, is a perfect example of how to represent libraries at city budget meetings. There were library supporters (or advocates) with a unique, customized, story that was entertaining and memorable. There was a cute kid, a sweet old lady, a nice old man, and more. They made an impact.
