Act Now to Help Save Library Funding
For a limited-time-only there is an opportunity to help avoid cuts that would impact hundreds of libraries and potentially millions of patrons. The President’s proposal last week includes eliminating the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) which administers federal funding through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). (See pdf: WI Impact of IMLS.)
Today’s the day to ask for Representative Sean Duffy's signature on the LSTA “Dear Appropriator” letters that must be signed no later than April 3. Please take a few minutes to call, email, tweet (or all of the above!) his friendly office staff with a message stating you are a constituent requesting he sign the FY 2018 LSTA ‘Dear Appropriator’ letter circulating now for signatures before April 3.” For more information visit The District Dispatch from the Washington office of the American Library Association.
