Every morning, Representatives and Senators have an opportunity to stand up and address their colleagues during the time period set aside for “other business.”
Tell your Members of Congress that on June 26, during ALA’s 2007 Annual Conference, you’ll be participating in Library Day on the Hill, along with hundreds of other library advocates, and that they could make this day extra special by going to the Floors of the House and Senate during this time and talking about libraries!
All we need is ONE MINUTE of dialogue about how important libraries are to their communities.
Make it easy for them by drafting a few remarks yourself, about how great your library is and the terrific services you offer their constituents, and then email it to your legislators!
A minute’s worth of pre-written remarks by you will be hard to turn down and, if your Member follows through, your library will be in the Congressional record!
