Zoë Kravitz’s new video PSAs for the ALA promote how libraries transform lives and communities through education and lifelong learning!
Let your community know they can discover and experience new magical worlds at the library, like those found in the Fantastic Beasts movies and Harry Potter books. People can create their own worlds using library resources and technology, including eBooks, games and 3D printers. Libraries are also places where people can connect with others who have similar interests.
Please feel free to post the video PSAs on websites, social media and more!
Versions of the two video files, with and without captioning, are available to download.

Want to do more to engage young people in library advocacy efforts?

By breaking down oft-intimidating “inside the Beltway” language, Spark provides an accessible set of tools that can activate and motivate young advocates for the rest of their lives. The video series also includes information on writing press releases, staging social media campaigns, using library resources for research or holding events, and best practices for contacting elected officials.
