Action Alert! Ask Senators to co-sponsor Innovative Approaches to Literacy bill

Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) is a critical program that funds competitive grants for underserved school libraries. Legislation is being introduced in the Senate to authorize the IAL grant program. Please call Senators Mikulski (202-224-4654) and Cardin (202-224-4524) and ask them to co-sponsor the legislation. While neither of the Senators signed on to the Dear Colleague letter in support of IAL (see the Legislative Panel blog post), this is another opportunity for the Senators to show their support for school libraries.

For more background information and talking points, see the Capwiz Action Alert. A link to the draft bill text is also available.

Thanks in advance for any advocacy efforts!
