Do you or a library user you know have your own story of library advocacy you would like to share? You can use the WLA Advocacy Committee’s Advocacy Stories form to record these meaningful experiences!”

WLA's Advocacy Committee is looking for new members! Email [email protected] if you're interested in advocating on behalf of libraries and library staff in Washington. If you are interested in the policy aspect of library advocacy, please look into WLA's Legislative Committee, a subcommittee of the Advocacy Committee.
