Let’s face it: one of the trends in the library industry is having to do more with less. How can you achieve your goals without sacrificing service when budgets and time are stretched thin? The key is advocacy. Join ALSC’s Advocacy and Legislation committee for an exploration of advocacy as it relates to children and children’s library services. You’ll get concrete tips on how to advocate for the patrons you serve, regardless of whether your advocacy happens at a local, state, or federal level. A&L will consider, too, the impact your advocacy can have on your community and profession.
In this session, three contributing authors from “Rainy Day Ready: Financial Literacy Programs and Tools” (ALA Editions, 2020) will share ideas and tips for hosting financial literacy initiatives at your library.
