Even if you can't make it to Des Moines, invite your legislators and ask them to come talk to teacher librarians about what 21st Century school libraries do, and how they can support our students through legislation.
Let's get lots of teacher librarians there!
2:30-3:30 pm Legislative update from Craig Patterson and Amy Campbell, ILA lobbyists, at Iowa Library Services, Ola Babcock Miller Building (corner of E 12th and Grand) Click here for map of Capitol Complex and parking options
3:30 pm Walk to the Capitol Building (metal detectors in use) and up to the Law Library on the second floor. Gather under the colored signs in the Law Library that represent your district.
4-6 pm Legislative reception
Legislators have been invited by ILA/Lobbyists, but a personal note from Teacher Librarians attending is best! Click here to download a .jpg version of the invitation that you can send to your legislator, and then add a personal message underneath if you like.
