Plan to attend the 2013 Minnesota Library Legislative Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. This will be an important year to ensure continued state support of library telecommunications costs, delivery, and Library Legacy programming. Registration for the day is encouraged but there is no cost to participate. Check the MLA website for details.
The MLA/MEMO Lobbyist, Elaine Keefe, and the 2013 MLA Legislative Chair, Mark Ranum, will offer an evening briefing on Tuesday, March 5, 2012 at 5:00 PM at Kelly Inn Best Western and a morning briefing on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 9:00 AM in the Minnesota Judicial Center, Room 230.
SELCO staff have booked appointments with the legislators from the SELCO/SELS region. Everyone is free to join the office visits on Legislative Day. In addition we are developing information packets for each legislator and have arranged carpooling to the Capitol on March 6. More information will be coming out in the next few months.
Please share this date widely with library staff, boards, trustees, supporters, and advocates. Only 17 days before Library Legislative Day!
