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 light of ALA's Annual Conference, which will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 20-25, 2019, the next National Library Legislative Day will occur in 2020. Check back for updates or contact Megan Ortegon, manager of Public Policy, for more information.
