If you haven't checked out ALA's advocacy work, and Geek the Library do, but (definitely!) see also:
- No single super hero is going to save the day. Assemble a league of super heroes to share the work. Build your tribe of library lovers and advocates.
- Reminding people is the essence of campaign organizing.
- Tools, not rules.
- Library use does not equal library support.
- Ignore the naysayer. Put your energy into working with folks who support libraries, and the people you can convince to support libraries.
- Reframe the message to get results.
- Start with story.
- Library advocacy projects are a wonderful opportunity to gain experience in a host of areas, including project management, leadership, political organizing, teamwork, technology, and communication.
- Have a good time and be kind to all-- including yourself.
