This message has gone out to ALA Members but not all of us are ALA Members
so I’m just posting this to a wider audience. Please share with your Board
members, library friends groups and anyone else you think might contact
members of Congress.

Good morning,

As you all know, we are in the middle of our yearly appropriations
campaign. The library community has already responded to the President’s FY
2019 budget proposal, and we have moved into the House side of the
campaign. Right now, we are coming up close on the deadline for
Representatives to sign this year’s letters in support of federal library
funding. Right now, one letter is circulating in support of the Library
Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and one for the Innovative Approaches to
Literacy (IAL) program.

As an update, we currently have 84 signatures on LSTA, and 49 for IAL. This
time last year, we were able to get over 140 signatures for both letters.

With the deadline coming up – March 19th! – I’d like to ask your help in
getting the word out about this campaign. We are maintaining a list of Reps
who have signed at ala.org/fundlibraries. Please take a moment today to
find out if your Rep has signed and contact them
<https://cqrcengage.com/ala/app/write-a-letter?3&engagementId=445994> if
not. And then help us spread the word!

Thank you all.
