2017 Minnesota Library Legislative Day Registration Opens

Minnesota Library Legislative Day is just around the corner. Friends of the Library – and library supporters of all types and stripes – are invited to converge at the Capitol in Saint Paul for the Big Event on February 21-22.  

Although Wednesday is the highlight, activities begin on Tuesday. MLA invites you to the Rice Street Library, 1011 Rice St., that afternoon. After light refreshments and an informal meet-and-greet, representatives of Capitol Hill Associates, MLA’s lobbying team, will get us up to speed on legislative developments affecting public libraries in 2017-2020.

If you are unable to attend the briefing, don’t worry. Capitol Hill Associates will host a repeat session the next morning at the Judicial Center (on the capitol grounds). You will then have a chance to meet with your congressional representatives and voice your support for libraries and their continued funding.

Click here to learn more, and to register for this free and truly invaluable advocacy opportunity. We look forward to seeing you there!
