2014 Library Legislative Breakfast Schedule

Library legislative breakfasts offer an opportunity for library advocates to tell their legislators about invaluable role libraries play in their communities and for their constituents and to voice their support for libraries.   
We hope to see you joining other library advocates at one of the breakfasts planned for early 2014. Directions to each breakfast venue can be found by clicking the links embedded in the venue names below. We have also compiled a toolkit with information on hosting a successful breakfast.  
If you are a library who will be hosting an event that is not listed here please send an email to Susan McAlister, smcalister@minlib.net or Sarah Hagan, manager@masslib.org.  
A schedule for Library Legislative Day, Monday, March 31, 2014 at the State House, has been posted.  Please click the link to access the schedule.
