Telling The Story

I just found another great video and a sample of how libraries can tell their story.

Author, Chris Bohjalian tells why libraries are so important to him. This could easily be replicated in your community. Find your superstars.

Advocacy - It's Happening in NC

We are busy in the state of North Carolina advocating for our libraries. Recently we had an all day workshop on "Who Speaks for Us". Fabulous information shared from Jamie LaRue, coordinator of the Big Hairy Audacious Goal progam, in Colorado, followed by Bill Millet who shared insights on North Carolina's challenges. Special thanks to UNC-Greensboro Library School who has developed a great website for our advocacy efforts. Check it out.
We have also been visiting many schools throughout NC to spread the message about the importance of getting a library card. And no one better than our great state spokesperson Beaux Foy.
