National Library Legislative Day 2013 – A look back

About a month ago, Maryland library advocates joined over 350 advocates from across the country to participate in National Library Legislative Day, an annual advocacy event coordinated by the American Library Association. Many of the legislator visits have occurred over the past month because of the conflict with the Maryland Library Association / Delaware Library Association Conference.

Overall, advocacy efforts were a success! Key issues included appropriations funding for public and school libraries and access to government research. We were able to reach out to newly elected Congressman John Delaney. We also received a compliment from one legislative assistant about how organized libraries are in their advocacy efforts. Some photos are available on the National Library Legislative Day web site.

Many thanks to everyone who participated and contributed to the success—either in person or virtually!
