RAISE YOUR VOICE FOR OUR NATION'S LIBRARIES!
BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY MAY HAVE TO CLOSE 10 BRANCHES AND LAY OFF ONE QUARTER OF ITS STAFF!!!
Libraries are needed even more during tough economic times. What is happening in Boston is happening across the country. Librarians are being cut in public and school libraries, branches are closing, library hours are being greatly reduced, book and new media budgets are being slashed--just when children and adults people need libraries and library services more than ever! There are young people right now who do not have access to libraries because their school libraries have been shut down and their branch libraries have been closed.
If you care, raise your voice for libraries in your own community and in our nation! Call, email, write, and fax your local, state, and national representatives and let them know how you feel!
And come to Washington DC June 29, 2010 and tell Congress how you feel at the Raise Your Voice Libraries Rally at the U.S. Capitol!
