ALA has many resources available online to help you advocate for your library and libraries in general.

The Advocacy University page includes links to many toolkits, including resources for frontline advocacy, advocating in a tough economy, and an advocacy toolkit geared specifically towards youth development and services.

The Advocacy Clearinghouse page provides advocacy fact sheets, a printable brochure including library facts, and links to advocacy pages geared towards specific types of libraries.

Check the Advocacy Events page for information on upcoming events with advocacy opportunities, and information from past advocacy events.

Not sure what issues need librarian advocates, or how to contact your legislators? Visit the Federal Legislation and Libraries page and the Issues and Advocacy page. These pages provide information on important issues, upcoming legislation that affects libraries, and information on contacting your federal legislators.

ALA provides one central page, the Advocacy for Libraries page, with all of these links and other links that you may find useful.

If you need further support or information about becoming a library advocate, contact the ALA Office for Library Advocacy.
