Libraries Transform Indiana

The Indiana Library Federation is excited to announce that it has joined the Libraries Transform campaign.

Libraries Transform is a public awareness and advocacy campaign which speaks to what today’s libraries and librarians do for and with people, rather than simply what they have. The goal of the campaign is help libraries and librarians speak with a unified voice about the value of today’s libraries, while also raising awareness for what modern libraries are about.

To date more than 2,700 public, school, academic and special libraries all across the country and around the world have joined the campaign. 

Libraries Transform provides libraries with clear messaging through the use of it toolkit and thought provoking “because” statements. Statements include:

•     “Because not everything on the Internet is true,”
•     “Because txt r fine, but srsly, ppl also need 3 c real sentences,” and
•     “Because students can’t afford scholarly journals on a ramen noodle budget.”

The Indiana Library Federation has created our own “because” statements that are specific to our state. Our statements include:

“Because every Indiana resident should have access to a public library,”
“Because one in six Hoosiers lives in an area without broadband,”
“Because 164 of the 2,509 Carnegie Libraries are located in Indiana.”

We have adapted the “because” statements to be used with our Libraries Transform Indiana logo for our libraries and library staff to use. Please feel free to download and use these statements in your library.
