Week of Tuesday, January 17

Deliver your introductory elevator speech to a local elected official or staff person.

Last week, you wrote a brief elevator speech to help you introduce yourself to your library community's alderman, the town mayor, or local government staff member.

This week, your challenge is to try it out!

Make a phone call or in-person visit to a local official's office to introduce yourself, including the elevator speech you wrote last week in your remarks.

Consider taking the next step and asking to schedule an appointment or meeting with your new contact to talk about the importance of library service to children and families in your community.

Next week, you'll send a handwritten letter or note of thanks that includes an invitation to visit the library in your community!

Let us all know how it goes so we can start a great discussion about Week Two. Be sure to share your triumphs and challenges—we're waiting to cheer you on!
