Library Legislative Day is February 14

Posted by Lisa Strand on Monday, November 07, 2011 in State Legislation/Initiatives

Library Legislative Day is Tuesday, February 14, 2012. "Libraries at the heart of the community" is this year's theme, whether your community is an academic institution, a K-12 school, a municipality, or a museum, law firm or hospital. Legislators need to hear from you about important library issues.

Major issues in 2012 include gaining support for:
• A bill extending the deadline for changes to the UW System’s research functions and WiscNet
• Protection of the Common School Fund for school library use
• A bill to enable public library districts
• A bill to improve options for recovering overdue library materials

Participate in Library Legislative Day to learn what is important to public officials and, in the process, position yourself as a resource on library issues. Appointments will be made for you and others from your legislative district. Background materials and briefing provided in advance give you talking points on the issues. Professional lobbyists will provide tips on having an effective meeting.
