Advocacy Alert! Email Senators & Rep to cosponsor Museum & Library Services Act

Building on the recent success with funding for libraries, we would now like to secure reauthorization of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). To accomplish this, the Museum and Library Services Act has been introduced in the Senate (S 3530) and House (HR 6988) with bi-partisan support. IMLS administers library funding through the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA). Reauthorization of IMLS will not guarantee funding in the future, but it demonstrates a strong commitment to IMLS and to continued funding for libraries.

Please email your Senators and Representative using the Engage links below and ask them to cosponsor the reauthorization bill. A pre-written message is provided and you can personalize it to maximize impact. Additional background information is also provided at those links.

Email your Senators asking them to cosponsor S 3530.

Email your Representative asking him to cosponsor HR 6988.

Thanks in advance for your advocacy efforts!

Advocacy Alert! Support IMLS, ask Senators to co-sponsor MLSA 2017

It’s not too late to support the Institute of Museum  & Library Services (IMLS) and the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA)! The American Library Association’s Washington Office would like for people to call our Senators and ask them to co-sponsor the Museum & Library Services Act (MLSA) of 2017 (S 2271) to reauthorize funding for IMLS and LSTA. This bill, if passed, would send a strong message of IMLS support to the Appropriations Committee.

Visit the engagement on the Engage site for more background information. Then call or email our Senators and tell your story about the importance of IMLS and LSTA funds for your library.

Thanks in advance for your advocacy!
