CMLE members (and others!) – if you are working with teens, and would like to go to Washington DC for Library Legislative Day – YALSA wants to help you!
Check out this opportunity below:
Due to the fact that the White House’s budget proposes eliminating all federal funds for libraries, YALSA’s Board has re-opened the travel stipend application in order to send an additional member to Washington DC to advocate for teens and libraries. The stipend, funded by Friends of YALSA, will enable one qualified recipient to receive up to $1,000 to attend ALA’s 2017 National Library Legislative Day, which will be held in Washington, DC, May 1-2, 2017. Apply by April 10, 2017. Applicants will be notified the week of April 17, 2017. Here is the application:
