On Thursday, August 19th, from 2-5 pm, Teen volunteers at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh-Main (in Oakland) will be hosting Teen Advocacy Day II. The first Teen Advocacy Day was a great time, and really made a difference in our 2009 fight for funding.
We’re hoping to repeat that success on Thursday, because the fight for funding continues. So come on down to Oakland for a free program, where you we will have:
- Button making – make yourself a button that shows you support the library.
- T-shirt making – decorate a t-shirt with your personalized advocacy design.
- Letter writing to influential politicians – write a letter to the RAD board, the Mayor, and the County Executive, urging them to fund libraries.
- Video interviewing - get “library famous” by sharing what you love about the library.
- Candy and cookie eating – of course we wouldn’t offer a big program like this without a few noshy bits!
We’re calling it Teen Advocacy Day, but it is really a program for all ages… so bring everyone you know, and have a blast while doing some good!
