Successful Advocacy Postcard Party!

As you can see, our table was packed! We had members coming and going, and it was a great way to introduce people from different types of libraries to each other!

Thank you to the many members who braved the cold on Tuesday, December 19th to join us at the Local Blend to write out some postcards to legislators, telling them all about the incredible impact libraries have on their communities!

We had a blast! Between seeing both new and familiar faces and the yummy warm beverages (and of course, exciting library conversation) we were able to write out nearly 75 postcards! Our goal was to encourage our legislators to support funding for libraries, and also to support net neutrality (for more on net neutrality and why it’s important for libraries, check out this article).

Of course, we are already thinking ahead to our next postcard party, which will likely take place in the spring. In the meantime, if you’d like to send some postcards of your own, along with some library facts or just a positive story about something that happened at your library, stop in to CMLE HQ to pick up a postcard or two. We’ll even mail it for you! 🙂

 

Join us Tuesday: Postcard Party and Library Chatting!

We are looking forward to chatting with you about libraries and other fun stuff! And we will give you postcards and library facts to use to send postcards to your stakeholders.

The goal behind our Postcard Parties is to share the value of libraries with legislators and other library stakeholders who may not hear enough about the incredible work that takes place in libraries. It’s up to us to let them know how important libraries are!

We are looking forward to our advocacy Postcard Party coming up on Tuesday, December 19th from 3-5pm at the Local Blend coffee shop in St. Joseph! We’ll chat, have snacks, and write out postcards to library stakeholders!

We want to make this as pain-free for you as possible, so CMLE will supply the postcards, library facts, addresses for state and federal legislators (feel free to bring your own addresses for your library’s stakeholders), and sample text of what to write on your postcard. Plus, we’ll mail all the postcards at the end!

Hope to see you there! RSVP below:
