Want to learn more about how to be an advocate for library issues? The ALA Washington Office is offering its first “Speaking Up!” webinar on Thursday March 6th at 4:00pm eastern. Although the training will be generalized for the various advocacy issues, we all know that we need to speak up for children and their library needs. If you want to improve your advocacy skills, this may be a great opportunity for you.
You can learn more and register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/442300631. This is a free training opportunity. Webinars don’t require that you travel any further than your computer so they are a great way to get staff development in small doses. Generally all you need is a computer that can access the Internet and a phone that can dial a toll free (or occassionally a toll) number.
