Legislative Library Day 2017 is scheduled for February 16, and library supporters from across the state will be in Frankfort meeting with their legislators. 

Room 113 of the Capitol Annex will be our base of operations starting at 8:30 am. Library friends, trustees, and staff will gather in room 113 before and after visiting their legislators.


Library Friends wear yellow to show their support of libraries
Friends Wear Yellow
Wear Yellow!!

We will be reminding our legislators of the importance of public libraries to our communities and talking with them about proposed legislation that would affect libraries. Participants are asked to wear YELLOW, the color that indicates support for public libraries. For each legislator, the Friends of Kentucky Libraries will provide a packet of yellow M&Ms with the message “Support Libraries”. Please stop by room 113 to pick up M&Ms to deliver personally during your visits.

M&Ms for Legislators

If you plan to come—and we really hope Friends from each of our chapters will attend—please contact your library director as some appointments have already been made, and legislators like visits to be coordinated.

For those who will be making the trip to Frankfort the day before Legislative Library Day or for those who live close by, there will be an Orientation Session on February 15 at 4:00 pm at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street, in downtown Frankfort. During this meeting, the Kentucky Public Library Association’s Advocacy Committee will let you know what to expect on Legislative Library Day and will brief you on bills proposed to date that could have significant impact on public libraries.
