Join the Illinois delegation to travel to the nation's capitol and get our message out to Congress! ALA's National Library Legislative Day (NLLD) is a two-day event that brings hundreds of librarians, trustees, library supporters and patrons to Washington, D.C. Illinois has traditionally delivered one of the most robust delegations and we expect to do so again this year. National participation is limited to 400 people this year, so don't wait to register!
