Get Legislators in Your Library!
ALA Washington Office | November 13, 2009
One of the best ways to get legislators to listen to (and, more important, support) you is to show them what your library does to benefit the community. Believe it or not, members of Congress still think of libraries as “those places with all the books.”
The good news is that your opportunities to make a real difference are just around the corner. Members of Congress and their staff will be coming back to their districts for the Thanksgiving and Winter District Work periods (exact dates to be determined).
Whether it’s a meeting with your trustees, friends, or employees, a visit to your library, or inviting legislators and staff to a holiday event, this session will offer practical tips for making these visits as worthwhile as possible.
