Live Streaming from D.C.: National Library Legislative Day 2017
This morning, the ALA Washington Office is live streaming a few events taking place at National Library Legislative Day (NLLD).
Viewable on the ALA Youtube channel
, the live stream will feature keynote speaker Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU National Security Project, starting at 9:00 am eastern. She will be followed by the Washington Office staff, who will provide a briefing on current legislation
and review how it could impact your libraries and the communities they serve.
The focus of #NLLD17 this year will be federal library funding, and we will be specifically asking Congress to:
- House: Save IMLS; Fully Fund the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program
- Senate: Sign the LSTA & IAL “Dear Appropriator” Letters
- House and Senate: Reauthorize the Museum and Library Services Act (incl. LSTA)
