 Librarians are on the front lines, helping the American people find the
government information they need to find jobs, work effectively, and
participate in our democracy. The programs of the Government Printing Office
(GPO) are integral in keeping the American people informed.  Unfortunately,
funding for the GPO is under attack.

The GPO is the only agency with the mission of ensuring that the American
public has access to Congressional, Judicial and Executive branch
information in all formats – physical and digital. An unintended consequence
of severe cuts to GPO’s budget may be the demise of its access programs.

Please contact your Congressional representatives and ask them to fund the
GPO at the President’s Fiscal Year 2012 recommendation. For background
information, talking points and contact information for your Congressional
representatives please visit: http://capwiz.com/ala/home/
