Tip #40

Frontline advocacy for school libraries:

Build an army of advocates – your front line! Form an advocacy team. Look for untapped resources (civic groups, local businesses, librarians who work for other kinds of libraries). Bring parents, student volunteers, teachers and administrative staff on too. Brainstorm with each group about how they can be effective advocates for your school library, then write up their ideas in an action plan. When you involve others in the process, they become invested in it and feel ownership.
