Come to the Capitol for AZ Legislative Day!

Posted by Editor on April 1, 2010

Library lovers,

Arizona Legislative Day is coming up on Wednesday, April 21st and we need to show the Legislature the support and positive impacts libraries provide to their communities.   AzLA is planning a rally at the Capitol at 11:30 AM.  I need to recruit a few library advocates to help tell our story.  If you have a Board member or library friend that can talk about what the library means to them, we’d love to have them be part of the program.

The Library Lovers on the Lawn Rally will feature Secretary of State Ken Bennett and State Librarian GladysAnn Wells who will talk about the state of libraries in Arizona.  Then we’d like to feature at least three library advocates that each speak for about 5-8 minutes.  Please let me know if you have a supporter that would be willing to speak. Lunch with the Legislators will follow the rally.

We also would like to pack the rally with library supporters.  Please send the attached flyer to your Library Board and Friends group and invite them to come to the rally. Help us spread the word and come celebrate our libraries!

Thank you so much!

Rita Hamilton, AzLA Legislative Chair
