As part of National Library Legislative Day 2016 (NLLD), we are offering
library advocates unable to attend in person the chance to participate
through Virtual Library Legislative Day (VLLD)!

This year, we’re teaming up with the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) to help
expand our efforts and take advantage of the momentum started by the nearly
400 library supporters who plan to attend NLLD. Their Chapters’ members are
pledging their time to make calls, send emails, tweet, and otherwise raise
awareness about library issues during the week of May 2nd. To date, the HPA
has received pledges for nearly 500 actions from their members!

We think we can do our wizarding friends even better.

Over the next few weeks, please ask everyone in your circles -- members,
followers, patrons, fellow library staffers, and listservs -- to join us! Once
they register
for VLLD, we’ll follow up by sending them talking points and other handy
resources they can use to advocate easily and effectively.  We’ll be
including a link to a webstream of the National Library Legislative day
program, live from Washington, on the morning of May 2nd. They’ll get to
hear our keynote speaker, former Congressman Rush Holt, and listen in on
this year’s issue briefing.

I’ve attached a few graphics that I’ll be using to promote VLLD on social
media this year. There’s also a handy resource toolkit for librarians
who may want to get younger advocates involved. Please feel free to use
them as you like! You can also find out more by visiting the United for
Libraries <http://www.ala.org/united/advocacy/virtuallegday> and the Harry
Potter Alliance
<http://www.thehpalliance.org/national_library_legislative_day> webpages,
or by subscribing to the Action Center

Please feel free to contact Lisa Lindle, Grassroots Communications
Specialist for ALA Washington, if you have any questions.
