In a few weeks, hundreds of library champions will travel to Washington, D.C. to meet with their members of Congress during National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) to champion national library funding (registration is open). To help first-time advocates prepare for the annual advocacy day, we created a photo essay using photos from past NLLD events (photos via flickr).
