Virtual Library Legislative Day
May 7, 2013
This Tuesday, May 7 and Wednesday, May 8, hundreds of library supporters from all across the country will convene in Washington, DC for National Library Legislative Day. They will be briefed on legislative issues affecting libraries and will meet with their members of Congress to discuss them.
You also can advocate for libraries by calling or emailing Congress as part of Virtual Library Legislative Day. All week long (May 6-10), library supporters can let their legislators know just how important our nation’s libraries are to the communities they serve.
This is an especially important time to speak up for libraries as Congress continues to make cuts that impact libraries. Here’s how to participate in Virtual Library Legislative Day:
To contact your Members of Congress, visit the Virtual Library Legislative Day information at http://capwiz.com/ala/home/ on the American Library Association - Legislative Action Center page. After reading the Featured Alert and Take Action with issue briefs, return to the Legislative Action Center page and enter your own zip code into the "Find your Officials" box, right below the Featured Alert box.
