  • Library Legislative Day is As Important As Ever in 2022! 

    Virtual sessions: April 5, 6, & 7


    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 5, 10:00 a.m. – featuring Western Massachusetts Library Advocates 

    April 6, 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. Can’t make your preferred session? Feel free to join another – you’ll get the same overall briefing and talking points on the MBLC Library Legislative Agenda. 

1-hour sessions will include:
  • Welcome and overview - Jennifer Harris, Co-Chair, MLA Legislative Committee
