Donate to the RILA Advocacy Video Campaign!

Collected: $4,336.00
Goal: $10,000.00
The Rhode Island Library Association (RILA) is currently working in conjunction with the RI Coalition of Library Advocates (COLA) to create a television commercial to air during the month of May 2017 on local television affiliates.


The primary goal of this commercial is to show the value of all libraries by highlighting how they impact the quality of lives of all Rhode Island.


RILA and COLA are fully financing the commercial, but we are looking to the broader library community to help make it possible to invest in an appropriate ad buy for airing the commercial.


The ad buy will require an investment of approximately $10,000 in order to achieve that goal. All money raised as part of this drive will be dedicated to the ad buy.


Please help RILA and COLA meet their goals!

Thank you to our Donors!
