Library Legislative Day is getting a reboot in 2020!
Virtual sessions: May 12, 13, & 14
Massachusetts Library Association and Massachusetts School Library Association invite you to join in virtual sessions this May to connect around library advocacy and then reach out to your State Representatives and Senators.
Four, MLA/MSLA Library Legislative Day, online sessions will be offered:
May 12, 10:00 a.m. – featuring Western Massachusetts Library Advocates, CW/MARS
May 13, 10:00 a.m. – featuring Central Massachusetts Library Advocates, CW/MARS
May 14, 10:00 a.m. – featuring libraries from Boston, Metrowest, and North of Boston
May 14, 11:30 a.m. – featuring libraries from South of Boston, the Cape and Islands
New this year, you are encouraged to join a session that corresponds with your geographic area as we are trying to match one or more Library Caucus members from each area to participate in that session. Can’t make your preferred session? Feel free to join another – you’ll get the same overall briefing and talking points on the Legislative Agenda.
1-hour sessions will include:
Jennifer Harris, Chair, MLA Legislative Committee
James Lonergan, Director, MBLC
Greg Pronevitz, Director of Outreach, MSLA
Roland Ochsenbein, Chairman of the Board, MBLC
