At 2:00pm a proclamation will be read in the House and Senate to celebrate Library Legislative Day

At 2:30pm Dr. Annie Norman will speak at the Joint Education Committee meeting where she will give an overivew of the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library pilot.  This is an open committee meeting held in the Senate chamber.  Please plan to stay, listen and show your support.
