RI Library Legislative Day 2015

Join RILA on Tuesday, February 10 from 2:30-4:30pm for RI Library Legislative Awareness Day in the State House Rotunda.  There is strength in numbers and a strong presence from the library community will demonstrate how many important resources are available across the state.  Tell your story!  Be there to meet and greet your legislators and take the opportunity to extol the virtues of library services in RI and your neighborhood. Ask questions, address issues, and rally support with a captive audience of legislators and State House staffers.  RILA will be joined by other library organizations to showcase our ongoing work.  All library staff, trustees, and friends are welcome!

Metered parking is available on Smith Street and connecting streets, or park very cheaply at the Providence Place Mall. Library organization information tables will be located on the second floor of the RI State House Rotunda.

Legislative Day is followed by COLA's Annual Meeting & Sweetheart event at the State House - plan to stay for that happening, too!
