URGENT Activist Alert!

Federal Funding for Libraries at Risk
Senators Jack Reed and Olympia Snow Lead Effort to Increase FY2012 Library Funding

If you and your family value public and school libraries, please take a moment to call both of your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 and ask them to sign onto the letter written by Senator Reed and Senator Snowe by close of business Wednesday, June 8.  Also ask library supporters to contact your senators as well.

Senators Jack Reed and Olympia Snowe are leading an effort to increase support for FY2012 federal funding for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and Improving Literacy Through School Libraries.  Tell your senators’ staffers to contact Elyse Wasch in Reed’s office or Matthew Hussey in Snowe’s office.  We need other senators to sign the Reed-Snowe letter as soon as possible.  Please call immediately.
