This year all legislator visits will be virtual, held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, February 16-18. This will let more library champions meet legislators and tell their stories of how libraries have adapted: we’re not only open, but more important than ever!
The multi-day event kicks off with the traditional morning briefing via web conference on Tuesday, February 16 at 9 a.m.— you get to bring your own coffee and muffins this year, so you know they will be good! Then on Tuesday afternoon and throughout Wednesday and Thursday, you’ll have half hour virtual meetings with your legislators.
This is our chance to let legislators know how we’ve adapted and responded to our community needs during the pandemic—safely and effectively. More than ever, state support for libraries directly helps communities survive and thrive—we need to tell legislators how we’re helping people now, thanks to state and local support.
Registration is open here!
