Mark Ibach Speaks to Kilbourn Public Library Volunteers and Board Members about Advocacy
Link to November 16 Wisconsin Dells Events article, "Speaker says libraries need advocates".
Excerpt: Kilbourn Public Library volunteers and board members received tips on how to build a ground-level campaign to promote the library at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon Friday.
The volunteers who had gathered at the House of Embers restaurant in Lake Delton listened to South Central Library Systems Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator Mark Ibach lend his experience in library advocacy.
He said his focus wasn't so much on advocacy at the legislative level but on spreading the word in the community.
"Advocacy is sharing the good news about libraries," Ibach said.
