The ALA Washington Office would like to extend special thanks to the librarians, friends of libraries, trustees, patrons and many library supporters who contributed to and participated in National Library Legislative Day 2007!
This year, over 424 participants from 47 states came to Washington, DC, to speak with their Members of Congress about the needs of libraries in the areas of funding, telecommunications, copyright, privacy and government information. Friends of Libraries U.S.A. presented an award to Sen. Susan Collins (ME) for her work in support of libraries. Also, several states and individuals participated in Virtual Library Legislative Day by calling, faxing letters and emailing Congress on May 1 and 2. Your help and support during National Library Legislative Day has and will continue to make a positive impact on libraries across the nation.
