Many think of advocacy as something that the director does, or the library friends, but the most successful libraries understand that advocacy involves everyone. They also know that sometimes the best advocates can be found in unexpected places. Whether you’re front line or back room, extroverted or introverted, whatever your “comfort zone,” you can make a critical contribution to advancing your library -- and community -- through some simple techniques that you can apply back at home tomorrow. Advocacy can help develop and demonstrate your leadership skills and help you gain recognition as a valued member of your library team.

All Reaching Forward Friday webinars are free and recordings will be available. Registration for the live webinars is limited to Illinois Libraries. Others may view the recordings when they are available.
