From their site:

What is this program?
This is a statewide campaign sponsored by CRPLSA to gather stories of the impact libraries have in their communities. It is being conducted both as an old-fashioned “mail in” advocacy effort and an online campaign. You will ask patrons to fill out postcards telling stories about why they love their library, or to visit a website and fill out an online form with their story. You collect the responses and send them to SELCO at the end of the campaign period. We’ll sort the responses to bring to the correct legislators on Minnesota’s Library Legislative Day in March 2017.

 

What do we hope to accomplish?
Legislators often say they want to hear from their constituents, and libraries are looking for ways to show the impact they have on their communities. What better way to accomplish both than to ask library users themselves to share their stories?

 

You can find your representatives here, so you can easily make a quick phone call to tell them about the work you are doing in your library – and give that to your patrons so they can talk about your great work.

And you can order all kinds of really nice promotional material on this site! Order postcards to give to your patrons, making it easy for them to share their stories. Or bring in more posters. Or order buttons, so library fans can all share their library love!

We support libraries!
