Check out the MHLS Real People. Real Dollars. Campaign

Help us tell the story of what a good investment libraries are, leading up to Advocacy Day on February 27th. Investing in libraries has a big return on investment for the communities they serve. Real People. Real Dollars. tells that story in pictures by working with a patron or a family of patrons to calculate how much they save annually by using the library. If you would like to participate in this campaign there is still time! Learn more at:
http://midhudson.org/real-people-real-dollars/

If your library is already participating in the MHLS Real People. Real Dollars. Campaign email your pictures to Kerstin Cruger, Library Sustainability Associate & Communications Specialist at kcruger@midhudson.org by Wednesday February 20th.
