Save The Libraries

The Trump Administration recently released its proposed federal budget for FY2018. The Institute of Museum of Library Services (IMLS), the independent agency that administers the bulk of federal library funding under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), is included in the list of independent agencies whose budgets the proposal recommends eliminating. You can help save library funding by calling your Members of Congress and telling them that you support the Library Services and Technology Act, which provides funding to every state for public libraries. Five minutes of your time could help preserve over $210 million in library funding now at risk.

The percentage of the Federal Budget that goes for libraries.
