Registration Now Open for 2012 National Library Legislative Day

Registration for the 2012 National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) in Washington D.C. is now open. At the NLLD registration site, you can register online or print out a form to mail or fax in.

The 2012 NLLD will be held at the Liaison Hotel in Washington D.C. To make reservations, chose one of the options listed on the registration site. Be sure to mention ALA National Library Legislative Day to get the group rate.

For 38 years, there has been an annual National Library Legislative Day in the nation’s capital. Each year, over 400 library supporters travel to D.C. where they receive training and briefings to prepare for meetings with their members of Congress. Many continue their advocacy activities when they return back home by building on the relationships they established at NLLD.

The White House Conference on Library and Information Services Taskforce (WHCLIST) and the ALA Washington Office are calling for nominations for the WHCLIST Award. Each year, the award is granted to a non-librarian participant in National Library Legislative Day (NLLD). The winner receives a stipend of $300 and two free nights at the NLLD hotel.
