Advocacy in Many Formats

Advocacy is always a hot topic for libraries. As the virtual world evolves there are so many ways we can expand our reach and education. Recently the New York Public Library had a video produced by Improv Everywhere as part of the library's "Don't close the book on libraries." What a fun way to spread the word.


I've recently been working on some advocacy issues and often refer to PLA's toolkit - Libraries Prosper with Passion, Purpose and Persuasion! If you haven't had the opportunity to use this toolkit - it's great. You might want to check it out - available for purchase from ALA.
