Libraries need funding from a variety of sources, but getting access to these various sources can be quite a challenge at times. This program will provide resources and practical guidance for telling the stories that will help you get the funding you need. You will have the opportunity to hear speakers with a history of advocating for and obtaining funding, and you will be given time to engage in discussion with fellow librarians, to brainstorm strategies for your own libraries.
