Mar: The Librarian as the Candidate; or How to Run Against Your Own Library and Win (San Jose State University)

March 19 (1-2 pm Mountain)

From the president down to local races, voters are activated by candidates they “know,” not platforms or policy statements. For library elections or funding advocacy, your work as a librarian makes you the best kind of candidate. In advocacy, we tend to talk to the public, to funders, and to voters about our institutions. We need to instead introduce you, the professional librarians, as change-agents in your communities who are worth the funding.
