Heads Up For Illinois Library Day Friday, April 16
Join your colleagues from this System and those around the state for a local Illinois Library Day on Friday, April 16. This year rather than meeting in Springfield to visit legislators at the Capitol, the Illinois Library Association is inviting library representatives from across the state to pay a visit to their legislators’ home offices to bring the critical message of support for library issues. This is a good opportunity to share with legislators the services that libraries provide to their communities and to bring the message of support for library issues. Snapshot data gathered will be very useful in delivering this message.
The week of April 5, Judy Rake and other library advocates will be scheduling appointments with legislators for the 16th in their local offices. She will post those appointments so that library staff people will know when to visit their respective legislators.
Questions, comments, or committed volunteers to assist with the event are asked to contact Judy Rake at firstname.lastname@example.org
