Register Now for State and Federal Library Legislative Days

Contrary to what the weather might suggest, another spring season chock-full of library advocacy opportunities is rapidly approaching!

MLA-logo-2014.pngClosest to home, we’re thrilled to pass along full details for Minnesota Library Legislative Day, March 4-5 in St. Paul. The annual event will culminate in a broad-based show of support on the Capitol grounds. Click here for a full itinerary of events.

As a primer, feel free to read over a near-final version of the year’s Legislative Platform, put together by the Minnesota Library Association (MLA) and the Minnesota Educational Media Organization (MEMO).

This event is open to the public, and library advocates with no professional or other formal association with Minnesota libraries are strongly encouraged to attend! Participation is free, but it is requested that you register by 11:59 p.m. Friday, February 28.

Registration for National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) in Washington, D.C., opened recently as well. ALA has slated this year’s events for May 5-6. Mark those calendars, and we’ll pass along more details as they become available!
