The American Library Association’s (ALA) National Library Legislative Day is held each spring in Washington, D.C. This year, National Library Legislative Day will be May 7-8, 2018. This is an opportunity for all library advocates to make their voices heard on a national level. Library advocates who cannot make it to Capitol Hill for the event can be a part of the effort by calling and/or emailing their elected officials. Register now to support libraries on National Library Legislative Day

United for Libraries, the ALA Washington Office, ALA's Chapter Relations Office, and the ALA Office for Library Advocacy lead this effort.

National Library Legislative Day began in 1976. In 2003, Friends of Libraries U.S.A. began a virtual component to engage Friends of the Library groups, library advocates, and supporters around the country who could not travel to Washington, D.C. for the main event. Now in its 15th consecutive year, the virtual campaign continues to support the efforts of those who attend this important day in Washington, D.C. and meet with their elected officials in person.
