Library Storytelling Team Guidebook, Paper 1 describes how a public library can organize a team to report its advocacy stories. Section 1 addresses the question, “Should we start a library storytelling project?” Changes in the public’s willingness to fund libraries and the changing roles of libraries in the 21st century are outlined. An overview of advocacy library stories and a team approach for an effective storytelling program follow. This section concludes with pointers to determine when it may not be appropriate to start this effort. Section 2 discusses the roles of the team members and when a consultant may be needed. Nearly 65% of the content has robust Appendices and a Glossary that provide sample agendas, a release form, a story review form, and other tools. These will save you time and the need to hire a consultant.
