Your library website should do more than just provide content.

Your library website should do more than just provide content.

Your communication program should use a tool that enables you to build support for library funding and engage the community in a way that builds political power and influence to help you increase engagement and support from your community. This is what NationBuilder can help you with and more.

NationBuilder is best in class software for leaders. Unlike any other solution, the NationBuilder platform is fully-integrated with every tool and functionality you need to lead--no separate website, database, email, social media marketing, separate event software, nothing. And that isn’t just convenient. It’s the difference between retaining your supporters and losing them.

Over 90% of library funding depends on the support of local voters and politicians.
This conference will train library workers, supporters, and advocacy groups to build support for local library funding.
