Tip #176

Legislators and other political officials love to receive mail from children that can be displayed on their office walls or on a hall bulletin board outside their office door. Make posters or collages featuring photos of children using items purchased with funding provided by the politicians (for example, computers or the state digital library–whatever the funding purchased). Make a big headline: Thank You, Senator or Representative or Mayor _________ for the _______. Leave a space for the children to sign their names at the bottom. Eye-catching glossy posters will be more likely to be displayed thus more likely to keep your library in the politician’s mind.
