Be a Library Ambassador

Love the library and want to let others know it? Become a library ambassador!

The mission of Bossier Parish Libraries is to enrich, educate, and inspire our community by providing unique and welcoming physical and virtual environments in which open thought, innovation, and the sharing of ideas are encouraged. Our vision is to support the changing needs of Bossier Parish by being a safe and inviting haven for all, fostering education and literacy, encouraging personal growth, inspiring curiosity, and building connections that strengthen our community.

We recognize the library cannot accomplish any of this alone and it will take collaboration between all members of the community to achieve these goals.

What can you do? We need you now, more than ever, to advocate for your libraries. Bossier Parish Libraries is seeking to establish a Library Ambassador Program (you may be more familiar with the term “Friends of the Library”) and we need you!

The Basics:
We need a core group of folks who love the library and see the value and necessity of what we do to volunteer to be our advocate.
The core goal of the Library Ambassador Program is to engage in advocacy efforts on behalf of the library under the guidance of the library and the library board.

In a nutshell, advocacy is publicly supporting the library and our mission—this can be anything from being a vocal supporter within your peer group to volunteering time for various advocacy initiatives.

What We Need Most Right Now:
We are looking for a core group of advocates who have specialized skills that can help in the foundation of this group (i.e. lawyers, accountants, non-profit administration, marketing/graphic design, etc.). We are also looking for anyone that is passionate about libraries and supporting us in this way.

If either of these apply to you, please let us know so we can keep you updated as we move forward.

Your support is vital to our ability to continue to serve our communities.
