Legislative Alerts

Thank you for your support. Staying connected with your legislators and elected officials is always good advocacy. Here are some things you can do now to support the library:

  1. Reach out to your legislators and thank them for their work and support of the library.
  2. Invite your elected officials to a library program or event.
  3. Share a personal story of library love with your legislator and tell them how their support helps to make those moments possible.
  4. Share your library story with us so that we can include it in our messaging to stakeholders. See the form below!
