Many thanks to all of you who contacted the Senators based on the earlier notice of this Action Alert!
Senator Cardin has signed on to the “Dear Appropriator” letter in support of full funding for Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) and the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries (ILTSL) program. Feel free to thank him with a phone call or using Capwiz.
Senator Mikulski has still not signed on, but there is still time before the April 14th deadline. If you have not already done so, please take the time to contact her office. Background information on this topic area available on the Capwiz Alert that is available.
The Action Alert will still contact both Senators. To contact only Senator Mikulski (or Senator Cardin to say thank you), go to Capwiz and enter your ZIP code in the box at the top of the screen. The screen will jump to the Maryland Legislative Action Center and display information under My Elected Officials. Click on the name of the Senator you wish to contact, click on the Contact tab and click on Web form. Select “Call your senators now to support library funding!” (or Compose Your Own Letter), click on Next Step and edit/type your letter and contact information, as usual.
