Today kicks off first day of National Library Legislative Day and your ALSC Advocacy and Legislative Committee has made it easier than ever this year for YOU to participate from home!
Explore the Everyday Advocacy website to find fantastic resources so you can tell law makers why libraries are important to your community.
Find talking points and contact information so you can tell your Congressmen and Senator what libraries are doing in their own district. Download and personalize a letter template to send to your lawmakers asking them to support library funding through LSTA, Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL), and other important bills.
The website also has ready to go tweets like the ones found below that allow you to just click and tweet!
- Tweet 1: It pays 2 support #libraries! Investment in libraries = investment in education & lifelong learning #VLLD14
- Tweet 2: Using <2% of tax dollars #libraries provide services to 2/3 of public! Support Libraries! #VLLD14
