GET ALERTS WHEN HELP
IS NEEDED ON NATIONAL AND STATE LEGISLATIVE ISSUES - http://cqrcengage.com/alaco/
Time is running out to get the support we need for LSTA and IAL! We have until April 3rd to get signatures from House members.
We need you to call your House member today or tomorrow to ask them to sign on to the “Dear Appropriator” letters supporting the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program! These programs add up to over $210 million in library funding that meets a variety of needs throughout the library world.
We still have a long way to go. We currently have 98 signatures on the IAL letter (we had 124 last year), and 42 on the LSTA letter (88 last year). Keep those calls and emails going!
Head over to the ALA Legislative Action Center to find talking points and email templates, or visit our friends at 5calls.org and use their script to make a call!
If you want to know if your Representative has signed the LSTA and IAL letters, check out this handy database. This shows which representatives signed on last year FY17, those that have signed up already for FY18, and those who have not.
If your Representative hasn’t signed, give them a call and ask them! And if they have, a thank you call or email never hurts.
Thank you for taking action!
