My Library, My Lifeline®

The Art of Telling a Strategic Story to Gain Support for Your Library

Workshop presented by Denise Davis  

What Does Your Library Mean To You?

We are in difficult economic times and today more than ever, people need the library — to work, to research, to live.

  • How important is the library to your family and to your quality of life?
  • How can you share your library’s story in a strategic way?

For this year’s DLA Legislative Day workshop, we have invited Denise Davis, Cecil County (MD) Public Library Director, President of the Maryland Public Library Administrators, and former Legislative Officer for Maryland Library Association to help us articulate our story on the topic "My Library, My Lifeline." This is a hands-on workshop. Please come prepared with the following information about your library:

  • Last year’s number of registered borrowers (has there been an increase?)
  • Last year’s number of items checked out (has there been an increase?)
  • Last year, how many people visited your library?
  • Last year, how many people attended library sponsored programs?
  • Anything unique about your collections, services or staff skills?
