At its basic level, advocacy is simply voicing your support for something you believe in and encouraging others to do the same. In libraries, this might be as simple as telling your friends and neighbors about the great things happening at your local library, or talking to decision-makers about how your public library needs additional funding.
Your voice counts! As a library patron, you are the heart and soul of the library community, and you have a crucial voice in making a case for libraries. As part of a voting constituency, you can capture decision-makers attention like no one else. When you see an elected official, tell them how much you value the services provided at the Pulaski County Public Library.
