Take your library advocacy to the next level this year – join us for National Library Legislative Day 2016!The event will be held in Washington, D.C. on May 2-3, 2016 at the Liaison Hotel. Over the course of two days, library advocates will have the opportunity to hear from trusted D.C. voices on the issues that matter most to libraries. On day two, armed with advocacy tips and timely issue briefs, advocates will take to the Hill with their state delegations to meet with their Members of Congress and rally support for libraries.This event is open to the public. If you are a librarian, a trustee, or simply a library fan, you are welcome to join us!Participants at National Library Legislative Day are also able to take advantage of a discounted room rate by booking at the Liaison (for the nights of May 1st and 2nd). To register for the event and find hotel registration information, please visit ala.org/nlld.Want to see a little more? Check out the video from last year!We also offer a scholarship opportunity to one first-time participant at National Library Legislative Day. Recipients of the White House Conference on Library and Information Services Taskforce (WHCLIST) Award receive a stipend of $300 and two free nights at a D.C. hotel. For more information about the WHCLIST Award, visit our webpage.

Your firsthand library experience – from behind the reference desk or as a patron – is an invaluable part of helping legislators to understand the impact that libraries have in the day to day lives of their constituents. I hope you will consider joining us!
