Library Advocacy Work is Relationship Building Work: A Panel Discussion
When we think about library advocacy work, we often think about issues impacting libraries but what about library workers? Why is library advocacy work important now? This panel discussion brings library workers (academic, public, and school) who are advocating for libraries in different ways. The discussion will focus on how library workers can advocate on issues impacting the profession and our communities. We need to talk and think about strategy and how we come together to communicate our issues, identify solutions, and partner with our communities. Join us for this discussion!
