Library Advocacy Videos

Now that the Texas Legislature is in session, it is time for librarians, Friends, board members, and citizens who love libraries to talk to their legislators about the importance of libraries. Severe budget cuts in the last session affected all Texas public libraries greatly.

The staff at North Texas Library Partners have put together some advocacy videos that you can use. Click on the link below. Thanks to Carolyn Davidson Brewer for sending these to us.

Our advocacy videos can be shown by your libraries, advocates, anyone wanting to use them especially during times like these when the legislature is reconvening and discussing library funding.  http://www.youtube.com/nottypicalntlp

Share Your School Library Stories

As a part of its continuing advocacy efforts, AASL is collecting school library stories to compile into a printed piece.  They are looking for short stories (one or two small paragraphs) on the successes of school librarians relating to education, college & and career readiness, equity, effective teachers, collaboration, leadership, ELLs, and increasing school performance. Submit stories and photos to Jennifer Habley .  Those stories received prior to Annual Conference will be available as a resource during Library Advocacy Day.
