In this session we will go through all of the ways that you can use paid phones to help win tax levies and influence elected funders. We will cover how live calls can help influence voters and get them out to vote for levies. We will also discuss how patch through calls can connect library supporters with elected officials to influence budgets and other legislation that is beneficial to libraries. Additionally, we will talk about how peer to peer text messaging can show the values of your local library and how telephone town halls can help to convene a community conversation around the importance of libraries. We'll examine what strategies can be done with budget's in the hundreds of dollars to the tens of thousands.
