Action Alert! Advocate Virtually for National Library Legislative Day 2013!

National Library Legislative Day is being held in Washington DC on May 7th and 8th. But if you can’t make it to DC, you can still take part in this national advocacy event by virtually contacting your representatives in Congress during Virtual Library Legislative Days, May 6th – May 10th. Give a simple thank you for supporting libraries, show appreciation for signing on to a Dear Colleague letter, encourage support  of legislation or advocate for a library issue that is your passion.

  • Issue Briefs Read the background and talking points on key issues from the briefs available on the Capwiz Action Alert.
  • Call Congress – Enter your ZIP code on the Capwiz site and get the phone numbers for your representatives.
  • Email Congress using Capwiz – Visit the Capwiz Action Alert for the virtual event. For your convenience, a pre-written letter is provided and you are encouraged to personalize your message to tell your story. Never used Capwiz? This is an easy way to start!
  • Tweet Congress – Use Twitter to automatically send a tweet to Congress in support of the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL). Sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).

Many thanks in advance for your virtual contribution to the success of National Library Legislative Day!
