I've long believed that authors are natural allies of libraries.
Especially in these challenging times, they understand the key role that libraries and library staff play in the economic, social and educational fabric of our nation. They can speak passionately on the importance of not only sustaining, but increasing support for libraries. My presidential initiative, Our Authors, Our Advocates: Authors Speak Out for Libraries, is a new campaign that enlists America's authors to become articulate and powerful spokespeople for libraries.
Please help fuel the national dialogue on America's libraries.
Spread the word. These public services announcements are available for placement on your library's website and for sharing with your library's advocates.
These new PSAs are being launched during National Library Week.
Stay tuned for more to come throughout the year.
