ILF & Advocacy

Statehouse Day

The Indiana Library Federation (ILF) is looking forward to the 2023 Statehouse Day on February 7, 2023. We are seeking members to assist with our efforts. We are looking for assistance with breakfast setup, technology support, poster design to highlight Indiana libraries, and general engagement of state representatives.

Please complete this form to register. There is a $25 fee for participation, which covers the cost of our donuts/coffee in the morning and a boxed lunch.

The Library Advocacy Update is issued weekly during the legislative session (monthly throughout the rest of the year) for anyone who subscribes. ILF membership is not required to receive these updates.
