   Next week on April 23 and 24, hundreds of library supporters from all
across the country will convene in Washington DC for National Library
Legislative Day.<http://capwiz.com/ala/utr/1/FYMORPSNSC/ICSERPSOEY/8180573396>They
will be briefed on legislative issues affecting libraries and will
meet with their Members of Congress to discuss them.

Even if you can't make it to DC, you can still advocate for libraries by
calling or emailing Congress as part of Virtual Library Legislative
Day.<http://capwiz.com/ala/utr/1/FYMORPSNSC/KWFRRPSOEZ/8180573396> All
