Turning the Page 2.0: public library advocacy training (online)

Turning the Page 2.0 is a free public library advocacy training course developed and presented by the Public Library Association (PLA) with generous support from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In this six-week, facilitated online course, library staff and supporters will learn how to create and tell their library’s story, deliver effective presentations, develop a compelling case for support, and build and sustain partnerships along the way.

Participants are encouraged to come with a specific, self-determined advocacy goal for their library. At the end of six weeks, you’ll have a complete Advocacy Work Plan to guide your efforts.

The full Turning the Page 2.0 course consists of:

  • In-person kick-off (attendance is not required, but is suggested. It’s fun!)
  • Followed by a six-week course of synchronous and asynchronous online work
    • Facilitator-led webinars provide live instruction and collaboration once a week
    • Independent work on assigned modules of Turning the Page online offers a dynamic program of active and personal learning (one-two hours work/week)
  • Offline one-on-one feedback from facilitators
