Attached are instructions that library advocates are using to create a flyer, both front and back page, to spread the news about Library Advocacy Day.

They are also referring people to this memorandum, which describes, among other things, how to get to the rally.

They are also referring people to this memorandum, which describes, among other things, how to get to the rally.

For example, starting at 10 a.m., Gale Cengage Learning will provide buses from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to the rally departing from the busing location (where participants would take the buses to get to the hotels). After the rally, buses will take those who are not attending meetings back to the convention center.

The ALA Washington Office will host Library Advocacy Day featuring a rally at 11 a.m. June 29, 2010, on the U.S. Capitol grounds in Washington, D.C. This one-time opportunity during ALA Annual Conference is a chance for library supporters to join together to demonstrate support for libraries and for first-time advocates to get involved. After the rally, which is free and open to the public, ALA members will meet with their members of Congress and their staffs to talk about the needs and concerns of the libraries in their communities. Go to www.ala.org/lad to learn more about the event, including how to register and identify your state coordinator to get involved with the Congressional meetings.
