Legislative Day is Monday, February 27, 2017.

FROM:  Ann Farr, Chair WVLA Legislative Committee

  • Legislative Day is Monday, February 27, 2017.
  • Exhibits in the Rotunda 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
  • A reception for legislators will be held in the Reading Room of the Library Commission from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.


The Legislative Committee wants to insure that every Senator and Delegate gets a personal visit that day from one of their constituents and is encouraged to attend the reception where he or she will have additional opportunities to talk with “their people”.

We also want to present exhibits in the Rotunda that highlight the contributions libraries make to the economic, educational and cultural success of our communities and the State of WV.

We need you to do 2 things:

  1.      Look over the list of service tables and people to contact.  Pick one you feel you can contribute to – something you feel your library does especially well – email or call the person listed and sign on to help with that display.  It is important that every county be represented in this effort so that when representatives come looking for constituents there will be someone there!   WVLA will prepare a master list of all the counties and the location of the tables where they are located within the Rotunda which will be provided to legislators.
  2.      Email wvlaleg.day2017@gmail.com and:
  •         Tell us who your representatives are (there are new ones and no master list yet) and which of them you have already talked to and which ones you will be visiting on Feb 27th.
  •         Tell us which of the services you are helping with so that we can include your county on the list for legislators.
  •         Please do not reply to this message.  Please use: wvlaleg.day2017@gmail.com
