ALA Introduces New Advocacy Resource

ALA’s Public Policy and Advocacy Office developed a tool that will help library advocates meet with elected officials during Congress’ August 2021 recess: How to Conduct an In-Person Library Tour. It shares best practices and steps needed to request and schedule a library tour, offers what to consider when developing the tour’s content and points of interest, and teaches how to publicize the tour via social media. ALA is encouraging libraries of all types to conduct a tour this August.

The press release notes, “Several important discussions and legislative opportunities for libraries are currently being negotiated, including securing the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 appropriations funding increases for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) grant, and ensuring that funding for library facilities is incorporated in an infrastructure plan through the Build America’s Libraries Act. Now is the time to illustrate the significant impact that libraries have on communities to legislators and decisionmakers.”

For more information, read the press release.
