OK, so it’s more than a day. But really, it takes more than a day to pack in this much legislative action!
National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) is a two-day event in which people who care about libraries participate in advocacy and issue training sessions, interact with Capitol Hill insiders, and visit congressional member offices to ask Congress to pass legislation that supports libraries.
A $20 registration fee covers 3 whole days of congressional collaboration, including:
- The Lobbying 101 pre-conference
- A briefing day at the Holiday Inn on the Hill
- A Congressional Reception
- A day of congressional visits on the Hill
NLLD is an excellent opportunity to lobby for your local library with your national representatives! For more information, visit the ALA Washington Office online. The registration deadline is April 4, 2008.
