Learn to be a Library Advocate, March 18

With ongoing budget challenges at the state and local levels, support for public infrastructure, such as community and school libraries, is slowly diminishing. But if you love your library and use your library, you should join us and learn more about how to be a library advocate to help keep all our libraries thriving! 

Join the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library for a library advocacy discussion. Speakers from the Massachusetts Library Association and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners will walk you through the basics of library advocacy: What it is, why it's important and how we can all work together to support and speak up for the important role libraries play in our communities and in our schools.

Monday, March 18
6:30 pm reception; 7-8 pm program
Community Room at the Main Library
449 Broadway in Cambridge

We're pleased to add the Massachusetts School Library Association to our event roster. MSLA will discuss the roles school libraries play as an integral part of our community library systems.

Learn from state experts about how community members and librarians can be effective advocates for Massachusetts libraries and gear up for Library Legislative Day on March 26th.

There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends to help support our Cambridge libraries, click here.
