Posted on April 16, 2013 by TWegner |
**Appropriations season has arrived in Washington DC and library funding is
on the table. Please call your U.S. Senators by *April 24* and ask them to
sign a "Dear Colleague" letter in support of funding for the Library
Services and Technology Act
LSTA is crucial for libraries because:

   - LSTA is the primary source of funding for libraries in the federal
   - LSTA helps many public libraries provide services to users that
   include, but are not limited to: job searches, résumé building help,
   digital literacy workshops, access to e-government services, etc.

To sign the LSTA letter, your senators can contact the office of Sen. Jack
Reed (D-RI) or Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).

Please use our calling tool to make the call today. Upon entering your
information you will

   - receive a call,
   - hear talking points,
   - and be directly connected to the DC office of one of your U.S.
   - To call your other senator, simply use the call form again
