Many public library users are unaware of the funding challenges faced by their local libraries. As library board or Friends group members, part of your responsibility is to advocate for your library at the local, county, and state level.
In this webinar, you'll learn about some common perceptions about advocacy, develop your proactive advocacy skills, and learn how to use the "Pixar Pitch" to tell your library's story, and more.
The webinar will be recorded, and will be available for viewing soon afterward.
All library board trustees, library staff, volunteers, and Friends group members are welcome to participate. There is no charge.
