How Are You Using the Library Today?

Welcome to the library! Whether you’re here in person or accessing the library online, we’re curious why you’re here, and what you are seeking. Your insights and experiences will create a dynamic picture of your community — and the country — viewed through the lens of local libraries. You will help journalists, librarians, the American Library Association (ALA) and its Public Library Association (PLA) division explore the information and civic needs of communities and do a better job of meeting them.

Turning the Page: Building Your Library Community

Turning the Page
Building Your Library Community

In June 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded PLA a $7.7 million grant to develop and provide a national advocacy training program. The program, branded Turning the Page: Building Your Library Community is designed to equip librarians and library supporters with the skills, confidence, and resources they need to create community partnerships, build alliances with local and regional decision makers, and ultimately increase funding for their libraries. This training was specifically developed for library systems participating in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Opportunity Online hardware grants program.

The Public Library Association was also able to offer three Turning the Page workshops to non-grantees at National Conference 2008 and 2010 and 2009’s Spring Symposium. Through the generosity of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Turning the Page online is now available to all ALA members absolutely free of charge! Register for Turning the Page online or resume your training session here.
