Q: Library Display: Animals

I am going to inquire at my local libraries if I can put up a display for certain causes. One is Anti-Horse Slaughter, and the other, information on inhumane Factory Farming.

I was wondering if anyone has done any displays like this, libraries or elsewhere.

If allowed by a library, my display will not be graphic. Too much is a turn-away...and of course, there are children.

I once participated in an animal cruelty awareness presentation and was amazed...and gratified, at the overwhelming positive response received by people who just-did-not-know. They were surprised and horrified. They wanted to know how they could help.

I will have hand-out informational flyers. I think it would also be a good idea to have something I can hand-out for people to specifically use to take action...advocate. For example, telephone numbers of their Representatives with a form they can read. Another, stamped/addressed, mailings they can sign. For as you know, many become informed, want to do something, want to help, but for various reasons do not take action They don't know what to do, feel insecure...forget...

I would appreciate some feedback if anyone else has done something like this.

Thank You.

As the president of The Baord of Trustees of our local library, I believe most libraries would be happy to allow you to present a program. We allow small displays with information and phone numbers to contact other non profit agencies at ours. A great way is coordinate your program with an elementary school, get the younger children involved by drawing pictures or writing stories.
ask the library to invole the children--most will love the opportunity to get more kids into the libaray.

I have not gone to libraries but i take action on the internet cause you can reach thousands. I do however think evrything you have said is a great idea. I truly think also having the representitives info so they can take action if they want to is a fabulous idea. Its good to inform people but double great to give them options on how they can make a change as well. I also someone who write my senetors often on horse slaughter and dog fighting, etc. Many people dont know how or who to contact and that they can do it on the internet. Its very easy to do it that way.
hope you get feed back from other who take to the public that way. great idea !
sorry about the spelling

I've not had a display at a library but they generally don't like a lot of clutter that they have to pick up etc. They are usually more receptive to just an informational poster. Before you put a lot of work into a display, contact the library about their display policy.
