Library Legislative Day is Even More Important in 2021!

Virtual sessions: April 6, 7, & 8


Massachusetts Library Association and Massachusetts School Library Association invite you to join in virtual sessions this April to connect library advocacy and your State Senators and  Representatives.

Four, MLA/MSLA Library Legislative Day, online sessions will be offered:

April 7, 10:00 a.m. – featuring Central Massachusetts Library Advocates

You are encouraged to join a session that corresponds with your geographic area as we are trying to match one or more Library Caucus members from each area to participate in that session.

  •  Welcome and overview
