New York Delegates are moving in on Washington DC for National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) #NLLD18, this Monday, May 7 for their briefings in preparation for visits to their legislators on Tuesday 8 May.
Over 500 delegates from all over the country, representing every State will be in Washington DC meeting legislators. The New York delegation is 25 strong, from every region of the State representing every type of library.
You can help with our advocacy efforts by contacting our Senators and the Representative(s) from your district using ALA's Legislative Action Center. Please take the time to let our legislators know how important libraries are to your communities. You can register to join our advocacy efforts.

Information about issues we will be advocating for are available in two briefing documents - Appropriation Brief and the Broadband Brief.
Here is access to the documents that delegates will be leaving behind with our legislators - the Congressional Federal Funding and the Broadband white papers. (these open in SmarterMail for ease of download)
Advocacy really DOES makes a difference! Here's the link to the ALA Page.
