How to book a talk

Are you calling a local group to set up a meeting for your advocate? How should you describe the talk?

Say, "Hello! This is *your name* from the *library name*. We'd like to book a talk about the 21st century library. Our community speaker is *speaker name*."

Then take the possible times and locations, verify how long the talk should run, and tell them you'll call back to confirm after you've made sure the speaker can be there.

If you're pressed about "what's the talk about?" just say, "today's libraries face a lot of challenges - and opportunities. We'd like to tell our community what the modern library is about."
