Check out the podcast ALA Washington Office put together highlighting some of the major issues including: Copyright, National Security Letters, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and Telecommunications. The podcast is also about how we can participate virtually and still have an impact even if we’re not able to go to Washington D.C. Letting our representatives know how important our work is that we do in other words. What a great opportunity to talk to our representatives about what libraries do for teens and can do because of the federal funding that supports library services.

Feel free to share your comments about how your teens have advocated for something-maybe it’ll help inspire other blog readers to get ideas on how to participate in National Library Legislative Day (May 13-14).
