Thanks to the 52 people who completed the
Relationship Mapping Survey
. It's not too late to help us assess and plan our advocacy strategies. We have also been emailing specific members who are residents of, or who serve, districts with key legislators. Thank you for sharing information.
Review and print a copy of our ILF Policy Agenda, as recommended by the Legislative Committee and approved the the ILF Board of Directors
Look for opportunities to tell your story or about our one or more of our three highest priorities for 2017:
- increased funding for school and library internet connectivity in the budget,
- stable funding for INSPIRE databases in the budget, and
- school libraries and certified librarians in K-12 education.
Consider attending a Third House / Meet Your Legislator session; the calendar is updated regularly by IaUW. The host usually opens the meeting and legislators give an update about what is happening in the Statehouse. Sometimes the host organization will facilitate questions. Attendees may listen or ask questions. Often there is a little time to visit with legislators. It is a great place to network and share your library story with other attendees. If you attend, consider emailing us. Many thanks to the library advocates who have attended Third House sessions in the past two weeks.
