Posted on behalf of the ALA Washington Office:
The next 36 to 48 hours is critical to get millions, maybe billions, of dollars for libraries in the Congressional stimulus package. We need every single library supporter to start sending messages and calling Congressional offices so that we can keep important library provisions in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). More details and talking points are available.
For contact information for your Congressperson, visit and type your zip code into the text box on the lower right. This will only take a few moments, but it can have a huge impact. Every single call and email will help increase the chance that libraries receive funding to help them serve their patrons better.
Please share this information with your colleagues, friends, coworkers, library supporters and library patrons. Thank you for all that you do to ensure that your community has access to excellent library services and resources!
