How Can I Support My Library?

How Can I Support My Library?

Published: April 08, 2022

National Library Week is coming to an end but not before we celebrate Take Action for Libraries Day! ❤

Tell an elected official about the benefits you’ve experienced at your library and thank them for their support of libraries. Vocal community support helps libraries secure much-needed funding.

  • Did you attend a meaningful program?
  • Did one of the library staff help you find the right book?
  • Did a Community Navigator help connect you to a much needed resource? 
  • Have you developed a friendship with the library staff?
  • Have you noticed an increase in your little's reading skills/confidence/grades after participating in Paws to Read/storytimes/Homework Helpers?
  • Were you able to use a computer, fax, or copier (with expert help ready when needed)?
  • Did you learn something new at the library? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, share that a city council member, county commissioner, representative or senator. Let them know why you appreciate their continued support of your library. Thank you for being a part of our community!
