ALA and The Harry Potter Alliance Launch ‘Spark’ Advocacy Video Series
The American Library Association (ALA) joined the Harry Potter Alliance in launching “Spark,”
an eight-part video series developed to support and guide first-time
advocates who are interested in advocating at the federal level for
issues that matter to them. The series, targeted to viewers aged 13–22,
will be hosted on the YouTube page of the Harry Potter Alliance, while
librarians and educators are encouraged to use the videos to engage
young people or first time advocates. The video series was launched
today during the 42nd annual National Library Legislative Day in Washington, D.C.
