You’re invited to OLA’s Legislative Day!
Who:           Oregon’s Library Community

What:         Tell your state legislators what is important to you about
Particular issues are:

·         Funding for School and Academic Libraries

·         Access to Electronic Legal Information

·         Ready to Read Grants

·         Privacy and Social Media

Issue briefs for all of the issues are located on the Issue Briefs page of
the OLA Legislative Network Wiki.

When:       Monday, April 8th, 2013

Where:     Salem, Oregon and all over the state

Why:           Because libraries matter!

How:           You can participate in person or virtually

In person: Check the OLA Legislative Day Appointments page on the OLA
Legislative Network Wiki to see if anyone has yet made an appointment with
your representatives.

If so, see if you can join the meeting. If not, make an appointment! Don’t
know who are your legislators? Finding out is easy!

Virtually: Call or email your representative on Monday, April 8th to tell
them what is important for libraries. Look for emails later this week
detailing talking points for all four of our current legislative issues.
They will be templates that you can use to send to your representatives or
use as a crib sheet when you call.

But I don’t know how to do that.
Don’t worry, read the following articles for some tips!
