Registration Now Open for MN Library Legislative Day 2015!

MLA-logo-2014.pngRegistration is now open for Minnesota Library Legislative Day, the linchpin event of our state’s library advocacy calendar. Library Friends from all across Minnesota are strongly encouraged to converge at the Capitol in St. Paul on March 2-3 to voice their support for libraries and their many public service offerings.

Although Tuesday is the highlight, activities begin on Monday evening. Library lobbyists Elaine Keefe and Sam Walseth will take that opportunity to get interested attendees up to speed with a special legislative briefing (details forthcoming). For those unable to attend, this session will be repeated early Tuesday morning. This is a perfect opportunity to get up to speed on legislative developments affecting public libraries in 2014-16.

Legislators will meet with constituents and hear their concerns about library funding throughout the day on March 3. A debriefing panel at 1:00 p.m. will round out the day’s official activities.

If you are unsure who represents you, click here. Navigate to "Who Represents Me?," or use the district finder. As time permits, please also check out this MLA fact sheet detailing 2015 priorities and action items.
