Get Legislators in Your Library (ppt)

One of the best ways to get legislators to listen (and, more importantly–support you) is to show them what your library does to benefit the community. Believe it or not, members of Congress still think of libraries as “those places with all the books.”

The good news is that your opportunities to make a significant difference are just around the corner. Members of Congress and their staff will be coming back to their districts for the Thanksgiving and Winter District Work periods (exact dates to be determined).

Whether it’s a meeting with your trustees, friends or employees, a visit to your library or inviting legislators and staff to a holiday event, this session offers practical tips for making these visits as worthwhile as possible.
