What is Library Advocacy Day?
Library Advocacy Day is a day for celebrating and showing our legislators how much our community values library services. Not all libraries have guaranteed funding. While this year has been harder than most, we continue to be here for our community providing the best library services and programs within our means. We hope you will share our sentiments and show your government officials just how important YOUR library is to your and your family.
How to Be a Library Advocate
- Submit your children’s coloring pages. Making the library a part of your children’s lives is a life-long practice instilled at an early age. Submit our coloring page with a sentence or two about why they love their library in their own words. You can drop the coloring pages off at the circulation desk or scan and email them to email@example.com by February 20th.
- Share Your Story. We know you love your library and that’s why we want YOU to share your story. Tell us why your library is important to You. We might use your story on our social media channels! Email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submit a Video for Highland Public Library’s “I Am A #LibraryAdvocate” Campaign. We are asking our #LibraryAdvocates to share with us via video why #nylibraries are important to you! Whether you are a seasoned library advocate, or this is your first Library Advocacy Day – we want to hear from you. Please aim for these videos to be at most 60 seconds and note that these videos will be shared via NYLA’s social media channels and during their virtual Library Advocacy Day Rally.
