Urban Librarians Unite has been able to have a wide ranging and financially huge impact despite having barely any resources. These knife in the teeth librarians have applied social media and tech to traditional activist tactics to get back hundreds of millions of budget dollars in New York City for the last four years.
Through disaster response, street librarianship, and front line advocacy they work to bring libraries out into the community and make the direct impact that the library makes a great part of their community’s lives.
ULU is effective because it uses strategy, intent, and creative design to weave advocacy narratives that tell a story and make people want to make a difference. Despite having no money and very little staff they managed to make real and meaningful impact.
They can show you how you can do it too. Through the tactical application of virtual communities and traditional sweat equity you can achieve incredible results in your community and with as well.
