Next Wednesday, February 18th is LLAM’s opportunity to make a real difference. It is Maryland Library Legislative Day, a chance to meet with your legislators and urge them to support libraries and UEMLA: House Bill 162 and Senate Bill 611. During the day members of the various county libraries visit with their delegations. LLAM has arranged to have county delegations to adopt a LLAMer for a day so you do not need to worry about making appointments, finding buildings, and rooms. They are vets at this process and will welcome your expertise in UELMA.
The agenda for the day is below and the attached PDF includes the day’s agenda, map, and MLA talking points and info on UELMA.
- 8:00 AM Continental breakfast (hosted by LLAM) briefing packets and candy giveaway will be available for pickup in the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Library (enter from Church Circle).
