The ALA Communications and Marketing Office has launched the new Tell Your Story! component of the ALA Library Funding Web site. The new ALA Library Funding Web site provides important information about funding cutbacks in libraries in states throughout the country. The Tell Your Story! component is an anecdotal collection that will allow library advocates to submit stories of how funding issues have affected their communities, and to retrieve stories to share with legislators, decision-makers, and the media. We hope that library advocates will take advantage of this new resource, sharing examples for use in upcoming meetings with legislators and beyond.
To view, go to www.ala.org/libraryfunding. Scroll down to the Tell Your Story! area to submit your library funding story, or to read stories about funding impacts around the country.
