We are now looking to develop more formal working relationships with a core group of committed libraries. More details on that work can be found here.
Since our work and support for libraries requires your support – we’ve several easy ways you can help.
Signing up for the email list and regularly visiting libraryrenewal.org is the easiest way to join in and stay informed.
You can also reach out to us on twitter via @libraryrenewal, you can “Like” us and join in a conversation on Facebook, you can leave thoughts and comments on The Library Renewal Blog, and of course, you can email us.
Speaking and Writing:
Library Renewal has a team that includes some of the most accomplished and well-respected speakers and authors in the library industry. We’re ready to write or speak about electronic content issues for you and your organization or event. Drop us a line and invite us to speak or write about Library Renewal for your organization, publication or event.
You can now donate directly to Library Renewal here. We even have some lovely rewards to offer as a thank you for your donations. Your donations support our outreach efforts, coding, research, and travel to conferences and meetings with key influencers and potential funding partners.
Your feedback and engagement is one way you can help make Library Renewal happen. Some of us though, even after signing up for the email list, checking in regularly on the site and online, and telling our friends, family and colleagues about our efforts towards Library Renewal will want to be more engaged. In fact, we’re counting on it!
If you happen to be especially excited about libraries finally having new ways to solve the problem of electronic content access for their communities and want to be involved, consider becoming what we’re calling a Library Renewal Advocate.
Advocates will have access to behind-the-scenes support, and community tools that will help them write and present locally and regionally about the needs facing libraries in relation to electronic content access. Being a Library Renewal Advocate requires extra commitment, but also comes with unique rewards (special gifts and events even) as well as a powerful sense of accomplishment as you will have a direct hand in creating Library Renewal in your local area and region.

To sign up, drop us a line indicating you are interested in being a Library Renewal Advocate. We’ll be in touch in short order, but to help things along we’d like to get to know you a bit. To help with that, please include some background information, tell us a little bit about yourself and why you are interested in being a bigger part of Library Renewal.
