Advocacy is about engaging people.
This is easier when talking with people who are already interested in a subject, and discussing it, either in person or online.
Maybe there’s a big meeting, a consultation, or lots of talk online following a big news story.
This can be an opportunity to make people think about how libraries help!
So for our 26th 10-Minute Library Exercise, join the debate!
If you’ve only got a little time, do a social media post – see our 18th 10-Minute Library Advocate exercise for more! Make the link between the subject of the discussion.
If you have more, write a blog explaining the library angle, respond to a consultation, or even go to a public event.
See the introduction and previous posts in our 10-Minute Library Advocate series and join the discussion in social media using the #EveryLibrarianAnAdvocate hashtag!
