Will your library find AT LEAST 21 people to speak up for 21st Century funding for libraries? Now is the time! Please personally use (and encourage others to use!) the NYLA Online Advocacy Center to send a custom message to your NYS Senator and Assemblyperson to advocate for an increase to state library aid.
Through this link you can use a pre-drafted message or edit the message to make it more locally, either way it just takes a few minutes to make a big impression!
Get the word out to your stakeholders through word-of-mouth both in-person and online! NYLA has provided a “Virtual Advocacy” Toolkit to help you get the word out through your library’s web site, Facebook page and Twitter account.
