You may already be aware of this change for next year's National Library
Legislative Day but I thought I should pass it along any way.

 Dear FLLAN members,

With a change ahead for 2010, I want ensure that all library advocates are
aware of next year’s National Library Legislative Day activities.

For one year only, Library Advocacy Day will replace National Library
Legislative Day (NLLD).  On June 28, 2010, library advocates from all 50
states will meet at Upper Senate Park on the U.S. Capitol grounds.   The
event, which will begin at 1 p.m., will feature guest speakers, photo ops,
and a chance to cheer on libraries!  After the rally, participants will meet
with their elected officials and their staffs.

To make this event a success, we will need NLLD coordinators’ and FLLAN’s
help.  As with NLLD, we’ll still need NLLD coordinators’ assistance to
coordinate their state’s activity and to set up meetings in Congressional
offices.  The states with the most people will be featured front and center,
commitment…which means they are the ones that will be in the majority of
pictures.  We also need to need a renewed to getting more advocates
involved.  This is an exciting, one-time opportunity that we hope will help
us build wider NLLD participation in the years to come.

More details will be on their way in the next month, so please stay tuned!
