There are only 37 days until National Library Legislative Day (NLLD)! On May 11 and 12, 2009, come to Washington, D.C. and take part in a historical NLLD — with a new Administration and a new Congress, now is the time to make history in our nation’s capital. Please visit our NLLD Web site to register or for more information.
In order to defray travel costs, ALA, in conjunction with the White House Conference on Library and Information Services (WHCLIST), is offering the WHCLIST award, which provides a stipend of $300 and a two free nights at the conference hotel to help defray the costs for a non-librarian participant to attend National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) May 11th and 12th in Washington, DC.

Can’t make it to Washington, D.C.? You can still get involved virtually! ALA will be Twittering LIVE all day with updates on Congressional meetings. Please sign up to follow ala_ogr so you can be in on the action. There will also be opportunities to participate via Second Life, so stay tuned!
