Welcome to a special bonus podcast episode!

You can find our shownotes right here, with links and all of our information in one place.

This week we want to get you ready for Minnesota Library Legislative Week! It runs from Feb. 25 through March 1 – so you have plenty of time to be a part of this important work. If you are not in Minnesota, stay with us; these issues will likely be similar to those in your state, and we would love for you to be part of your state’s Legislative Day or Week activities!


If you are new to advocacy, that’s fine! Advocacy is best done as a team sport – we are stronger when we all work together, so you will not be left alone in your advocacy for libraries.


All of us, as a library community, need the support of our state legislators to provide funding to libraries. It comes in a variety of ways, goes to different groups, and is aimed at solving assorted library needs. It’s all important, and we literally need every dime we can get so that we can keep moving forward in serving our communities.


But we know that a lot of people do not have a complete grasp of all the details, and it’s hard to start advocating for libraries when you are confused about what exactly is happening. We are here to help! We will walk you through the basic issues, and direct you to all kinds of resources to give you knowledge and confidence to be a good advocate.
