Pundits and politicians from both parties agree that while the 112th
Congress may have averted an immediate plunge over the fiscal cliff through
its New Years package of tax extenders and sequestration delays, this
debate is nowhere near over.  That's where the 113th Congress comes
in.  With almost 100 new members of the House and Senate, there are a lot
of new faces to meet, greet and persuade on the value of libraries.

Your voice is more important now than ever before.  Only you can help stop
immediate and dramatic cuts to LSTA, IMLS and other critical funding
programs.  Wait, federal funding isn't your main concern? How about
averting changes to cybersecurity, copyright, broadband and elementary and
secondary act policies that will negatively impact libraries around the

In short, everyone in the library community should join us for an update on
the fiscal cliff / sequestration situation as well as the policy issues
most likely to be considered in the coming year.  Perhaps most important,
we'll tell you how best to speak up -- and make a difference.****
