Library Legislative Day 2014

MLA MSLA Legislative Day 2014 was a success this year with over 230 library advocates attending and visiting their legislators.  The Western Massachusetts Library Advocates’ bus was nearly full in spite of the iced roadways in the west.  Forty-six legislators signed in for the activities.  Representative Paul Mark gets high points driving in from Peru in the sleet and ice to make his presentation. 
The day’s highlight was the naming of Senator Stan Rosenberg as Library Advocate of the Year.  Congratulations Stan!
Each year the Massachusetts Library Association (MLA) and the Massachusetts School Library Association (MSLA) combine resources to bring attention to library issues at the State House.  If you haven’t attended, plan to come next year.  It’s a great chance to speak with your legislators and to meet with like-minded colleagues.
