Libraries the world over make their communities strong, but they could do so much more with support from their elected leaders. United States Representative Andy Levin from Michigan has turned his support for libraries in his district into a national priority. The Congressman worked with library advocates to successfully secure hundreds of millions for U.S. libraries during the pandemic and beyond.

Join IFLA CPDWL and IFLA NPSIG for a conversation with Rep. Levin to learn what it takes to make the case for library investment with your political leaders to advance literacy and expand library services. Loida Garcia-Febo, webinar coordinator, IFLA CPDWL advisory member, and ALA Past President will interview Rep. Levin.

This event is pre-recorded and experts on library advocacy from the ALA Public Policy Office will be providing information and answering questions on a live chat accompanying the presentation of the interview.

This webinar is co-organized by IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workforce Learning (CPDWL) Section and New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG).
