  National Library Legislative Day is May 4-5, 2015 and it will be here
soon.  Please take a moment to share the following registration information
with your networks, on social media, and through any listservs you
moderate. Encourage everyone to join us, and to pass the information along
to friends and associates who may also be interested.

It is so important to have library advocates in Washington, DC to
participate in impactful face-to-face meetings. And in the wake of the
sweeping changes to both the House and the Senate in the 2014 Congressional
elections, it is more important than ever that library supporters rally
together to speak up on behalf of libraries and the communities they serve.

This year, National Library Legislative Day will be held May 4-5, 2015. If
you haven’t already, please take a moment to consider joining us this year.
Registration information and the discount code for the hotel room block are
both available on the ALA Washington Office websit

Know a non-librarian who gets fired up about library issues? First-time
participants are eligible for a unique scholarship opportunity. The White
House Conference on Library and Information Services Taskforce (WHCLIST)
and the ALA Washington Office are calling for nominations for the 2015
WHCLIST Award <http://www.ala.org/advocacy/advleg/nlld/funding>. Recipients
of this award receive a stipend ($300 and two free nights at a D.C. hotel)
to a non-librarian participant in National Library Legislative Day.

The promotional video for National Library Legislative Day this year can be
