National Library Legislative Day
Subject : National Library Legislative Day
Location : Washington DC
Date : Monday, May 7, 2018  GMT -05:00 US/Canada Eastern
Organizer : tlncalendar@tln.lib.mi.us
 

National Library Legislative Day is May 7-8 2018.

 

Michigan’s delegation is over 20 participants!

 

However, the more voices we have, the LOUDER we can be!

 

Why should you consider joining us?

 

  • Because IMLS (and therefore LSTA) are still in jeopardy! (In Michigan IMLS/LSTA funding pays for MeL, as a start)
  • Because Net Neutrality  & Rural Internet Access are STILL important!
  • Because our Legislators may not know how current issues can affect Michigan Libraries.
  • Because our communities depend on us.
  • Because every child deserves a local library.
  • Because Libraries NEED ADVOCATES!!
  • Because NO ONE CAN TELL YOUR MICHIGAN LIBRARY STORY LIKE YOU CAN!
  • Because it doesn’t have to cost as much as you think!
  • Because there are more Becauses!!!
