March 14 - ILA Legislative Day
Join us in Des Moines on March 14. We will begin with a legislative briefing from members of our ILA Government Affairs Committee and the ILA Lobbyist. The briefing will begin at 3:00 PM in Room 310 of the Ola Miller Babcock Building located across the street from the State Capitol.
 
Following the briefing, we will walk across the street to the Law Library inside the State Capitol. ILA will host a reception from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. This is an opportunity for ILA members to connect in-person with our elected officials, thank them for their support of libraries, and share concerns and priorities.
