 Dear 2008 National Library Legislative Day Participants,

First of all, I'd like to introduce myself: my name is Kristin Murphy and I
am the new Government Relations Specialist with the American Library
Association in the Office of Government Relations.  One of my primary
responsibilities is coordinating NLLD, and I'm excited to be working with
all of you!

The White House Conference on Library and Information Services (WHCLIST) and
the ALA Washington Office wish to announce the 2009 WHCLIST Award that
provides a stipend of $300 to help defray the costs for a
non-librarian participant
to attend National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) May 11th and 12th in
Washington, DC.

WHCLIST was an effective force in library advocacy nationally, statewide and
locally, following the White House Conferences on Library and Information
Services in 1979 and 1991.  With no national conferences in the foreseeable
future, WHCLIST has chosen to provide its assets to the ALA Washington
Office, to transmit the spirit of committed, passionate library support to a
new generation of advocates.  Both ALA and WHCLIST are committed to ensuring
that the American people get the best library service possible.  The WHCLIST
Award will be used to further these efforts.

The criteria for the WHCLIST Award are:

   - The recipient should be a library supporter (trustee, friend, general
   supporter) and not a professional librarian.
   - Priority will be given to first-time attendees of NLLD.
   - Applicants must include a registration form, a letter of reference from
   a library director, school librarian, library board chair, friend's group
   chair or other library representative.

Representatives of WHCLIST and the ALA Washington office will choose the
recipient.  The ALA Washington Office will contact the recipient's Senators
and Representatives to announce the award.  The winner of the WHCLIST Award
is announced at NLLD.

*Applications are due April 15, 2009.*

* *

To apply for the WHCLIST award, please submit a completed NLLD registration
form, a letter explaining why you should receive the award and a letter of
reference to:

Kristin Murphy

*Note: *Applicants must register for NLLD and pay all associated
costs.  Applicants
must also make their own travel arrangements but will receive 2 free nights
in the NLLD hotel in D.C.  The winner will be notified by April 20, 2009.

Please pass this information along to anyone you think might be interested.
If you or anyone else has any questions, please don't hesitate to contact
