National Library Legislative Day

National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) is a two-day educational event that brings hundreds of librarians, trustees, library supporters, and patrons to Washington, D.C. Attendees spend one day learning about effective advocacy tactics and pressing federal legislative issues that are impacting libraries. On the second day, they join 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.

Note: In 2019, National Library Legislative Day will be combined with the ALA Annual Conference, which will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 20-25, 2019. A series of advocacy events will be planned, and details will be released soon. Check back for updates or contact Megan Ortegon, manager of Public Policy, for more information.
