Format: Webinar, original date August 13, 2015
Hosted by: WebJunction and Public Library Association
Length: 1.5 hour

This webinar highlights free, newly revised downloadable materials for public libraries distilled from landmark advocacy and awareness-building programs. Learn about two resources: 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, Cathay Keough, Ava Ehde, Barbara McGary, Julie Meredith, and Mary Lou Carolan
