Held in Washington, D.C., National Library Legislative Day?(NLLD) is a two-day educational event designed to provide attendees the opportunity to learn from policy experts and raise awareness among federal legislators about how and why libraries are vital to communities across America. This is an opportunity for all library advocates to make their voices heard on a national level. Library advocates who cannot make it to Capitol Hill for the event can be a part of the effort by calling and/or emailing their elected officials.?

United for Libraries, the ALA Washington Office, ALA's Chapter Relations Office, and the ALA Office for Library Advocacy lead this effort.

National Library Legislative Day began in 1976. In 2003, Friends of Libraries U.S.A. began a virtual component to engage Friends of the Library groups, library advocates, and supporters around the country who could not travel to Washington, D.C. for the main event. Now in its 15th consecutive year, the virtual campaign continues to support the efforts of those who attend this important day in Washington, D.C. and meet with their elected officials in person.
