2017 Library Day 


 

March 8th-9th, 2017

  

Advocate for libraries at the Florida Capitol on Library Day!  Join us on March 8th-9th, 2017 to meet with your legislators and let them know how important libraries are to our communities across the state.  Use this opportunity to showcase the need for support.  Take advantage of this hands-on experience to learn the legislative process and effective advocacy.  There will be several events to network with fellow librarians from all over Florida, so don't miss out!  

In the spirit of presenting a united front, we would like you to wear a turquoise-colored shirt/blouse/tie/jacket.  We look forward to seeing you in Tallahassee!  Please register by February 22nd, 2017
