Libraries Matter: Use Videos to Advocate for Libraries
Weeks before the start of National Library Legislative Day, the American Library Association’s Washington Office launched “Libraries Matter,” a series of videos showcasing the ways libraries use federal funding to support early literacy, high-speed internet access, small business owners and new citizens. Library supporters can use the videos to demonstrate the value of federal funding programs, such as the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), to legislators, decision makers and community leaders. The videos can be used to educate policymakers about the countless ways that libraries impact their communities. Library champions are encouraged to send the videos to policymakers before or after their scheduled advocacy meetings. Access the full video playlist: www.districtdispatch.org/librariesmatter
