The American Library Association Washington Office is coordinating a Twitter Blast for today at 3pm in support of school libraries. See the information below for more details. Thanks in advance for your advocacy efforts! (Apologies for the short notice. An earlier announcement was not seen.)
From the American Library Association Washington Office:
A reminder that a Twitter Blast is scheduled today at 3pm EST. Please support school libraries by tweeting the following message at both your senators and your representative (below is an example of the tweet directed at Rep. Denny Rehberg of Montanta):
@DennyRehberg Keep $30 mil for #literacy and school #libraries in this year’s federal funding!
To find out if your Congressional representatives are on Twitter and what their handles are, visit this website: http://classic.tweetcongress.org/officials/states.
If your member’s are in fact on Twitter simply click on the picture below their name to be directed to their Twitter page. There you can copy and paste the above tweet into the text box to tweet directly at them. Feel free to personalize the message with the remaining characters.
We’re shooting for over 1000 tweets so I hope you will help us reach our goal. Thanks!
