Good morning all!
The Social Media Subcommittee had hoped to unveil the new MLA Library Advocacy Video at LAD in Jefferson City this morning but since we weren't all able to get together today we will be doing it online. At conference last fall in St. Louis we asked attendees to share their thoughts / stories on why libraries are important and they delivered in a amazing fashion.
We often lament that decision makers and sometimes even our own communities don't see the impact of what we do in libraries like we get to see as we help people everyday. Please feel free to use this video in your advocacy efforts to help spread awareness of the impact of MOLibraries and how important we are to our communities. As one of the social media team said after viewing it. "I'm not crying, you're crying."
A special thanks goes out to the rest of the Social Media Subcommittee members who worked so hard with me on this project: Sarah Reando, Michelle Swane, Rebecca Van Kniest and Ethan Evans. And a huge thank you also to all of you who took the time to share your stories with us!
