2018 Manitoba Municipal Elections Toolkit now available!

Posted in Advocacy

Another election season is upon us!

On October 24, people in municipalities across the province will go to the polls. The Manitoba Library Association has created an election toolkit to help engage candidates and the public on the topic of support for public libraries.

We have also provided information for members of the public to encourage voters to also engage the candidates.

Find the 2018 MLA Municipal Elections Toolkit here. This Toolkit provides the basic pieces needed to communicate with candidates:

  • an email template for contacting candidates;
  • three suggested questions to pose to candidates;
  • a list of helpful information related to the value of public libraries.

#AskAboutLibraries is where members of the public can find information to engage candidates on questions about library service in their communities.

MLA encourages you to make use of or share both these resources as your mandates allow.
