See below for an easy way to advocate for library services for teens!

April Witteveen | Community Librarian | aprilw at deschuteslibrary.org

In conjunction with National Library Legislative Day<http://www.ala.org/nlld>, YALSA has created an online campaign to raise awareness of the important role libraries play in helping teens succeed in school and prepare for careers.  We need your help in getting the word out about it!  We are using a platform called Thunderclap to flood Twitter and Facebook with our ‘take action to support teen literacy & libraries’ message.  The Thunderclap allows people to pledge a Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook message that is unleashed at the same time.  It’s completely safe and will automatically post exactly one message on your behalf at 11am, eastern, on May 6th.
Here’s the prepared message (limited to 140 characters) you can help us get out: “Fund #libraries! They give teens a brighter future by helping them succeed @ school & prep 4 careers #nlld14 http://thndr.it/1fitEv0”
It takes 10 seconds to join the Thunderclap so you can send out the message-here’s how:

●      Click on this link https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/11163-act-now-for-libraries-youth

●      Choose Twitter, Facebook and/or Tumblr

●      From the new screen, log into your Twitter, Facebook and/or Tumblr account

●      That’s it!  You can opt to share the Thunderclap with others (please do!), or just close the box
Please sign up for the Thunderclap by no later than 11am, eastern, on May 6th.

Thanks for all that you do to help raise awareness about the important role libraries play in preparing teens for life beyond school!  Please pass this information on to library supporters that you know.
