The purpose of this guide is to help libraries find the resources they need to advocate for their libraries.

Advocacy Alerts!

The Library Stabilization Fund Act

Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and Representative Andy Levin (D-MI) are sponsoring legislation calling for $2 billion in economic recovery funding for America's libraries through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The Library Stabilization Fund Act would allow libraries across the country to retain staff, maintain services, and safely keep communities connected and informed. Please take a moment to let your representatives know how important libraries are for your community.

National Celebration Weeks and Promotional Events

ALA's offices and divisions sponsor a variety of library promotions throughout the year that libraries of all types all across the country can get involved with to promote libraries and create awareness of library issues. Check out the links below to see how you can bring these promotions to your library. The oldest of these events is National Library Week.
