Successful advocacy is not just about talking – it’s also about doing.
Great speeches, presentations or social media posts can of course help guarantee support for your work.
But unless this is backed up by committed people, then the messages will not work forever.
There is little more convincing than someone who is focused on providing a great service, be it to people in a local area or the staff and students at a university or school.
So for our 25th 10-Minute Library Advocate exercise, be passionate about your job!
Clearly this is a full-time task. But if you take just 10 minutes, you can think about how you can show your motivation to your users and visitors.
Go that little bit further, and people around you will see that by supporting libraries, they are supporting people who are doing the best they can for the community.
