The 2011 National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) is quickly approaching! The event will be held on Monday, May 9, and Tuesday, May 10, at the Liaison Hotel in Washington, D.C.
With a Republican-led House of Representatives and a Democrat-led Senate, many leaders in Congress have different ideas about the best course of action for our nation — particularly as we continue our efforts to recover from the economic recession. This power struggle is threatening the future of many library programs – members need to hear from you and other constituents that support for libraries is always the best thing for our nation!
Be sure to reserve your room at the Liaison Hotel; the ALA has reserved a block of rooms at a reduced rate at the hotel, but they are going quickly. The block is listed under American Library Association 2011. Call 1-866-AFFINIA to make a reservation or click here. For more information or to register for NLLD, click here.
The American Library Association, Chief Officers of State Library Agencies and the District of Columbia Library Association sponsor National Library Legislative Day. We look forward to seeing you soon!
