Work to get local endorsements from groups like the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, or other service organizations
Ask community opinion leaders and library supporters to write letters to the editor.
Speak with local service organizations about why the library needs the additional mills and how the money will benefit the community.
Strive to get the attention of local news media - hopefully in a positive way
Create a fact sheet that answers common questions
How many mills does the library need?
What will it cost the average taxpayer?
How will the money be used?
Compare the cost of the mill with other common purchases that people make like buying coffee or a hardback book.
Be creative. For example one library created a coloring sheet for kids that said "Get Out to Vote." The sky's the limit when it comes to getting the word out to your community.
