Advocacy & Marketing

Periodically, we post about our experiences and beliefs regarding advocacy and marketing.  Without a doubt, these are an important part of librarianship as a whole.  And sometimes, the thing you have to advocate the most for is teen services.  That after school crowd coming into the library can be loud and intimidating, but the truth is their behavior is really quite developmentally normal. Of course in today's economic climate, we are fighting for funding in our communities and the allocation of that funding within our libraries.  Below are the links we have posted regarding advocacy and marketing.
