Advocacy Committee

The NLA Advocacy Committee provides opportunities for advocates to increase public awareness of the value of libraries and the library profession and plays a key role in formulating policies and standards that affect library service in the state. Advocacy is a daily opportunity for every library supporter, starting locally and reaching across the nation. By our annual Advocacy Day in Lincoln, you will be ready to effectively inform our state Senators of library-related issues and best solutions.

Our committee maintains a powerful tool for you to use when engaging with elected leaders about important library issues.  Please check in with our Engage Page often and be ready to take action as needed by our Association.
