When you’re advocating, you don’t need to do it alone.
Sometimes, it’s even more powerful when you have someone else speaking for you.
And there are few more powerful voices than those in the media.
When a journalist speaks about libraries – and the great work they are doing – they can reach thousands, even millions of people.
So for our fourteenth 10-Minute Library Advocate exercise, find a journalist who can write about libraries.
They can work for a local newspaper or news-site, in print, on radio or on TV – whatever is most appropriate in your area or country!
You could do a search using a news aggregator like GoogleNews or similar to find out who may already be writing about libraries. They’ll often be keen to receive more good ideas for stories!
Let us know about your successes!
