Planning for 2005 National Library Week will probably start soon for your library, if you aren't already deep into committee work. Getting your mayor or governor to sign a proclamation would be nice, and should be one of your easier duties. ALA usually has proclamation text for you to adapt (example here: ). Next, you contact your mayor's and/or governor's office to ask them to sign it (remember to ask if they will allow you and board members/library supporters to be in a photo with them while they 'sign' the document). Examples of two governors' proclamation sites: Nebraska , and Missouri . [If there is a page listing all 50 governors' proclamation sites, please send it to me as a comment -TH]
