“It is so important to have library advocates in Washington, DC to participate in impactful face-to-face meetings. And in the wake of the sweeping changes to both the House and the Senate in the 2014 Congressional elections, it is more important than ever that library supporters rally together to speak up on behalf of libraries and the communities they serve.
This year, National Library Legislative Day will be held May 4-5, 2015. If you haven’t already, please take a moment to consider joining us this year. Registration information and the discount code for the hotel room block are both available on the ALA Washington Office website.
