Please take five minutes to make your voice heard! We need you to contact your members of Congress and ask them to fund libraries.
Note: The deadline to sign these appropriations letters is much shorter than in previous years. The letter leaders in Congress need to hear from other Congressional Members by March 10. Your advocacy is needed now.
- Visit the #FundLibraries campaign page to see if your members of Congress have signed on to the effort.
- If not they have not signed, please email your officials and urge them to sign on to the Dear Appropriator Letters in the House and Senate.
If you want to take an additional step, call the office directly as listed here:
- Contact the House of Representatives operator at 202-225-3121 to speak to your Representative
- Contact the Senate operator at 202-224-3121 to speak to both of your Senators offices.
Please share this note with your colleagues, friends, family, and any other library lovers in your life and ask them to make these requests. We need Congress to hear us, loud and clear.
