Maine DOE joins library advocates in Washington, D.C. for National Library Legislative Day

Last week the Maine DOE was represented along with hundreds of library supporters in Washington, D.C. to speak with their legislators about the importance of libraries.

On May 4-5, the Department’s School Library and Technology Integration Coordinator Sherry Wyman joined more than 400 library advocates and met with members of Congress as part of National Library Legislative Day to discuss key library issues during the American Library Association’s (ALA) 41st annual National Library Legislative Day.

This year National Library Legislative Day advocates asked their congressional representatives to fund the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and support programs that provide school libraries with needed funds for materials.
