PHILADELPHIA -- Applications for cycle two of the Citizens-Save-Libraries
grants from United for Libraries, made possible by a grant from the
Neal-Schuman Foundation, are due May 5.

The 10 libraries that are selected will receive two days of onsite
consultation by advocacy experts, who will help friends of the library
groups, library directors and trustees develop individual blueprints for
advocacy campaigns to restore, increase or save threatened library budgets.

Among the criteria to apply is a willingness to "pay it forward" by sharing
what is learned with others in their states through presentations at local
conferences, articles written for the state library association journal and
a willingness to answer questions and support other advocacy campaigns via
digital media and Skype. The first 10 libraries were selected in 2013.

As part of the grant, a Citizens-Save-Libraries Power Guide that lays out a
step-by-step blueprint for libraries to follow in generating advocacy
campaigns is available to all libraries at no cost. The Power Guide is
available atwww.ala.org/united/powerguide.
