This program is intended for public library directors, staff, trustees, Friends of the Library members, library foundation/association members, and anyone interested in learning more about effective advocacy for their local library. Two Nevada library directors will lead a discussion with library trustees and other library supporters on ways to engage the community and demonstrate the library's value to governing bodies. Attendees will be encouraged to join the discussion and share success stories or ask for ideas to help with their local situations.
