EXTENDED SESSION: Advocacy Bootcamp- "Who needs libraries?"

"Who needs libraries?" Beneath those three words is an iceberg of challenges, from delivering on-point messaging, gathering compelling statistics, and the need to re-educate key audiences on the value of libraries. Advocacy & Intellectual Freedom Bootcamp urges attendees to re-think advocacy: to re-define the library community and expand the way we have been advocating for libraries. The program will cover advocacy basics such as messaging, networking and community engagement. Attendees will develop actionable steps that they can implement in their library. This is a joint effort of ALA's Office for Library Advocacy and the Office for Intellectual Freedom.
