|Advocate for your library!|
MLSA is a smart investment in every community across the nation, reauthorizing IMLS and LSTA - funding which has brought hundreds of thousands of dollars to Cumberland County, PA in the form of library services and new technology. This bi-partisan supported legislation was introduced by Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania Senator Robert P. Casey signed on in May. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent in early December, and today it passed in the House.
If you advocated on our behalf, thank you!!! And be sure to send your THANKS to our elected officials. If you like, the American Library Association has a form you can complete. Or find your federal representative and senators on the left side of this page to send a personal note.
Rather send a Tweet? Here's the message we suggest:
Huge thanks to @SenJackReed and @SenBobCasey and everyone who made the passage of the Museum and Library Services Act possible. We are grateful for Congress' renewed commitment to supporting @CCLSLibraries and libraries across the nation! @US_IMLS
