Teen Advocacy Day: Sunday 1-4PM, CLP-Main

This Sunday is Teen Advocacy Day here at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main. Being a teen advocate means speaking up about the importance the the Library in your life and the lives of other Pittsburghers, too.

The Teen Advisory Council has put together this event to let teens and other Library users know how great their Library is and how they can help advocate. This is a great opportunity for teens to get involved in their community! Stop by one of our tables to learn about what the Library offers to you and your community, what the Library needs to keep its doors open and what you can do to help!

Here are the major details:

* We’re asking RAD for a 4% increase in funding next year.

* This money would go directly to CLP’s Operational Budget, which covers things like utilities, books and other materials, and paying the people who work here.

* We will have 4 tables set up-

  • Video Recording – so you can tell us why you love/need your library.
  • Letter Writing – so you can tell RAD to support the increase in funding.
  • Video Gaming – to show you one of the popular programs we offer teens at the library.
  • Button Making – to show you another popular program we offer teens, and you can make an advocacy button!

We’re also raffling off a ton of stuff. We have some gift cards to Target and iTunes, and will have a couple of swag bags loaded with books, and some pre-paid fine cards. You get a raffle ticket for recording a video or writing a letter! (Or they can be purchased with the proceeds going to CLPs Operational Budget.)

Everyone is welcome to participate! This means adults and children can take part in programs that are reserved for teens the rest of the year! (While all ages are welcome, we are focusing on getting teens specifically to advocate.)

Any questions? Just comment below and we’ll get back to you right away!

  2. Hi,

    I really enjoyed reading about your Teen Advocacy Day and I thought you would be interested to know that after more than 23,000 public votes were cast during a month-long voting period, Abbott Laboratories has awarded two $19,000 scholarships to two exceptional students with cystic fibrosis who are extremely active in their local and CF communities – Lauren Meiss, winner of the Thriving Undergraduate Student Scholarship, and Emily Kramer-Golinkoff, winner of the Thriving Graduate Student Scholarship. The winners were chosen based on their outstanding academic achievements, community service, artistic talent, as well as the number of votes they received during a public voting period.

    Please feel free to post this news on your blog as you best see fit.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Best regards,
