Your Public Library (DVD, Brochure)

No community can afford to lose its public library and the technology services it provides. To help, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is making available two new tools, entitled Keeping Your Community Connected, that can help advocate for libraries:
  • Video
    Show an eight-minute DVD to launch conversations with local government and community partners.

  • Brochure
    Circulate a related brochure that includes persuasive statistics, library patron stories, and a call to action for community members and leaders.

Both of these items are available for loan from the Oregon State Library OR you can request your own set directly from the Gates Foundation by clicking on the link below. Please provide the following information in the body of your email:

  1. Your name
  2. Your job title or role in the community (e.g. librarian, city council member)
  3. Your mailing address (Please note, we cannot ship to post office (P.O.) boxes)
  4. The name of your public library
  5. Your phone number
