FY12 Budget proposal includes IMLS cut, ILTSL consolidation

According to the District Dispatch, President Obama released his FY2012 budget proposal on Monday.  (Not to be confused with Congress’ current work on a Continuing Resolution for the FY2011 budget!)  There are two areas of concern:

  1. IMLS assistance to libraries – The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funding for assistance to libraries was cut by about $20 million to a total of $194 million.
  2. ILTSL – Improving Literacy Through School Libraries (ILTSL) is also consolidated with a few other literacy programs, as was proposed last year.

Additional information will be made available after further analysis.
