Library Advocacy Day from ALA Washington on Vimeo.
For one year only, Library Advocacy Day will replace National Library Legislative Day (NLLD). On June 29, 2010, library advocates from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. will meet at Upper Senate Park on the U.S. Capitol grounds. The event, which will begin at 11 a.m., will feature guest speakers, photo ops, and a chance to cheer on libraries! After the rally, participants will meet with their elected officials and their staffs.Can't go to Washington? You can participate in the VIRTUAL LIBRARY ADVOCACY DAY too! Visit the ALTAFF (Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations) for more details. "By calling and/or e-mailing your elected officials in Washington and asking them to vote for libraries, you can make a difference."
