Registration is now open for National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) on May 7-8, 2018. NLLD is a two-day educational event that brings hundreds of librarians, trustees, library supporters and patrons to Washington, D.C. Registration fee is $75.
Attendees spend one-day learning effective advocacy tactics and being briefed about pressing federal legislative issues that are impacting libraries. On the second day, they join other attendees from their state to meet with their members of Congress and rally support for library issues and policies. Open to the public, the event also offers attendees the opportunity to attend a reception on Capitol Hill.
Back in May, University of Wyoming Dean of Libraries Ivan Gaetz and Western Wyoming Community College Hay Library Director Janice Grover-Roosa, accompanied by Wyoming State Librarian Jamie Markus, traveled to D.C. for NLLD 2017 and met with our Congressional Delegation.
