National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) will be May 4-5, 2015. Participants will receive advocacy tips and training, along with important issues briefings prior to their meetings on Capitol Hill. This two-day advocacy event brings hundreds of librarians, trustees, library supporters, and patrons to Washington, D.C. to meet with their Members of Congress to rally support for libraries issues and policies.
Registration information and hotel booking information are available on the ALA Washington Office website.
First-time participants are eligible for a unique scholarship opportunity. The White House Conference on Library and Information Services Taskforce (WHCLIST) and the ALA Washington Office are calling for nominations for the 2015 WHCLIST Award. Recipients of this award receive a stipend ($300 and two free nights at a D.C. hotel) to a non-librarian participant in National Library Legislative Day.
For more information about the WHCLIST award or National Library Legislative Day, check the ALA Washington Office website. Questions or comments can be directed to grassroots coordinator Lisa Lindle.
