Welcome to Minnesota!


Capitol scaffolding

Minnesota is the host state for this summer’s National Conference of State Legislature’s annual Legislative Summit being held next week.  Often the host state’s capitol building plays a leading role in the Summit’s events but Minnesota’s beautiful 109-year-old Capitol is undergoing a major renovation after over a century of hard use and won’t be part of the events.   

The staff of the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library are looking forward to hosting the Legislative Research Librarians staff section of NCSL.  NCSL librarians will be touring the  Library on August 21st.  The Library is located across the street in the State Office Building–a building that is not being renovated!

Seven Library staff will be volunteering and attending the conference next week as well as staffing the Library.  We hope to post stories and pictures about the conference sessions and events as the week ahead unfolds.  Stay tuned!
