Fight for Libraries!

 
The President has proposed eliminating virtually all federal library funding and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This year, like never before, libraries and everyone who loves them must tell their members of Congress to support full federal funding for critical programs like the more than $210 million provided annually for Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) programs.
