Library Legislative Day - February 16, 2010 (7:45 AM)
Best Western Inn on the Park
22 N. Carroll Street
Keynote speakers: State Superintendent Tony Evers and State Representative Penny Bernard Schaber
Learn about library related legislative issues and help Wisconsin libraries serve the state better.
WLA's legislative agenda is set annually by the WLA Board of Directors based upon recommendations from the Library Development and Legislation Committee (LD&L). WLA works closely with the Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association on issues concerning school libraries. We also support the work of the American Library Association by appointing a Federal Legislative Advocate to monitor and communicate about those issues.
If you have any questions or concerns about the WLA's legislative program, please contact Lisa Strand, WLA Executive Director.
WVLS is organizing a bus for LLD: Are you planning to attend WLA’s Library Legislative Day on Tuesday, Feb. 16th? If so, how would you like to make the trip to Madison with WVLS staff and trustees? If there is enough interest, WVLS will once again secure a bus for the event. Tentatively, the bus would leave Wausau on Monday afternoon, Feb. 15th at 4:00 p.m. and return on Tuesday afternoon, Feb 16th at 4:30 p.m. The cost will depend on how many people travel on the bus, but should be considerably less than if people travelled separately. Please contact Susie Hafemeister by Friday, January 29, (firstname.lastname@example.org ; 715.261.7250) to reserve a seat on the bus.
