Library Advocacy Day – Wrap Up

Library Advocacy Day was held on Tuesday, June 29th.  Over 1600 library supporters, including more than 100 people from Maryland, rallied on Capitol Hill.  Then many visited legislators to encourge support of libraries.  In addition, over 1100 people contacted legislators through Capwiz during Virtual Library Advocacy Week.  Many thanks to all who participated!  Here is a collection of photos and a video on the live event.
