The Public Library Association announced that Turning the Page online is available free to all American Library Association members. This interactive, web-based training guides participants through the creation of an advocacy plan.
Learn how to create and tell the library’s story, deliver effective presentations, develop a compelling case for support, enhance your project management skills and build and sustain partnerships through this self-paced, interactive and entertaining advocacy training.
Turning the Page online is composed of dynamic slides and interactive exercises, culminating in the completion of a 10-part Advocacy Work Plan. It typically takes four-five hours to complete, but can be stopped and resumed as needed. From library directors to trustees—Turning the Page online is appropriate for anyone interested in making a difference for your library.
Turning the Page was developed by the Public Library Association with funding from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ohio libraries participating in The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Opportunity Online Hardware Grants attended this training in 2009.
