In these difficult economic times, libraries of all types are needed more than ever. And our library customers, students, and communities need us to speak up for the incredible role of libraries in supporting education, workforce development, and competitive colleges and universities.
Illinois Library Day will be held on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 and is a day of advocacy held in Springfield. It is a time for library supporters to “talk up” libraries with visits to elected officials at the Capitol. Illinois Library Day is held during the state legislative session and includes training and special briefings the evening before the full day of visits.
