Maine Library Legislative Day is Monday, January 29th, 2024!
Please join us in the Hall of Flags of the State Capitol. You will have the opportunity to tour the Chambers, learn more about the Law and Legislative Reference Library, and learn tips and tricks to be an empowered advocate for libraries.
The Maine Library Association, Maine Association of School Libraries, and the Maine State Library are working together to provide some virtual training and workshops leading up to MLLD. This day is a great way to learn more about the legislative process, how to start your advocacy journey, and spend time with other people in the field and learn from their experiences. We all have stories to share, and this is the perfect opportunity to connect with people in your field who share your concerns.
Remember, advocacy can be part of your everyday, but one day a year we have the Hall of Flags to show our impact as a sector and our importance as a connection between elected officials and the communities they represent. Please complete the registration form, and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or ideas you'd like to share.
