Free  Advocacy Toolkit – updated!
Investing in teen services isn’t just good for teens; it’s good for libraries and for communities. It is up to those of us who care deeply about those services and who understand their importance to make the case—with our administrators, with colleagues, with library boards of trustees, and with our communities. The 2013 Advocacy Toolkit<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/sites/ala.org.yalsa/files/content/Advocacy%20Toolkit.pdf?utm_source=YALSA+Members&utm_campaign=37fbaa69ec-YALSA_December_2012_E_News3_9_2012&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9b370be8bb-37fbaa69ec-> (PDF) will provide some practical tips, messages, facts, and strategies to help you speak up—without adding too much to your already full plate. Visit YALSA's Advocacy and Activism web page<http://www.ala.org/yalsa/advocacy?utm_source=YALSA+Members&utm_campaign=37fbaa69ec-YALSA_December_2012_E_News3_9_2012&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9b370be8bb-37fbaa69ec-> for more information.
