As part of the Wisconsin Library Association's efforts to spread library advocacy messages across the state, please share the following messages with your local Friends of the library, trustees, and other library supporters in your community. Help them “Speak Up” for your library! We hope you have a ready email list of such supporters to call on for this project - but also for future calls to action.
This week's advocacy message is "Libraries are Busier Than Ever." Of course, use the messages in any order you wish and tailor them to suit your needs.
A companion resource from the American Library Association is a free Frontline Advocacy Webinar on learning how to promote the value of libraries every day. The webinar shares valuable methods of integrating advocacy messages into everyday interactions with your many constituencies. It is scheduled for Friday, October 29, 1:00-2:15 p.m.
During this very busy time of year, thank you for taking time to “Speak Up for Libraries!”
