Are you looking for advocacy resources to increase your skills in making the case for your library?  Be sure to join this WebJunction webinar on August 13 to find out more. Two of our Michigan library director colleagues will be contributing to this webinar as well.  (WebJunction webinars are also archived and available for later viewing.)

Because Advocacy Never Stops: New Tools for Taking Action
Thursday, August 13, 2015 - 2 pm EST - 90 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/because-advocacy-never-stops.html

This webinar will highlight free, newly revised downloadable materials for public libraries distilled from landmark advocacy and awareness-building programs. Learn about two resources scheduled for release in summer 2015: updated curriculum from Turning the Page including tools, worksheets and training materials you can adapt locally to grow your team's advocacy knowledge and abilities; and a new online guide that walks through each step of planning and carrying out a local library awareness campaign modeled after Geek the Library. Hear from library leaders who have put these ideas to work to build advocacy know-how, increase staff confidence, and engage more deeply with the community. Whether you are looking to get started, or seeking to maintain momentum following a recent advocacy effort, join us to discuss strategies to take your library to the next level.
Presented by: Lance Werner, Director, Kent District Library; Cathay Keough, Statewide Coordinator, Reference Services, Delaware Division of Libraries & Executive Director, Delaware Library Association; Ava Ehde, Library Services Manager, Manatee County Public Library; Barbara McGary, Executive Director, James V. Brown Library; Julie Meredith, Library Director, Clarkston Independence District Library; Mary Lou Carolan, Director, Wallkill Public Library
