In addition to the live webinars in our training calendar, each month we try to pick some videos out there that you can watch “At Your Leisure.” These on-demand offerings caught our attention for September:

Join Megan Dingman and Maggie Unterseher, Library Media Specialists in Campbell County, Wyoming, to explore technology and library media integration opportunities. Hosted by Paige Bredenkamp of the Wyoming State Library.
Fundamentals of Library Advocacy (EveryLibrary)
In this introductory webinar, we are going to explore what it takes to build a movement for libraries in your local community. The advocacy theory, strategies, and tactics that we introduce come from some of the largest movements for causes and political campaigns. These advocacy tools include data, messaging, supporter cultivation, fundraising, using volunteers, and a wide range of tactics like Facebook, outreach, email and direct mail, paid and earned media, and much more.
