Well, its writing - ALA Library Funding Web site

The Communications and Marketing Office today launched the new Tell Your Story! component of the ALA Library Funding Web site. The new ALA Library Funding Web site provides important information about funding cutbacks in libraries in states throughout the country. The Tell Your Story! component is an anecdotal collection that will allow library advocates to submit stories of how funding issues have impacted their communities, as well as retrieve stories to share with legislators, decision-makers, and the media.

With National Legislative Day around the corner, we hope that library advocates will take advantage of this new resource, sharing examples for use in upcoming meetings with legislators and beyond.

To view, go to Scroll down to the Tell Your Story! area to submit your library funding story or to read stories about funding impacts around the country.
