Advocacy Update! MLSA has passed! Congress renewed commitment to America’s libraries

Congress passed S 3530, the Museum & Library Services Act (MLSA), to reauthorize the Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS) and the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA)!

Many thanks for all of your advocacy! Please take a moment to thank your members of Congress for their support using Engage or sending the Tweet below. In particular, thank Senators Cardin and Van Hollen for their co-sponsorship of the bill. Representatives Brown, Cummings, Hoyer, Raskin, Ruppersberger and Sarbanes all voted for the bill. Representative Harris voted against. Representative Delaney did not vote.

If you’d rather send a Tweet, here’s the message:
Huge thanks to @SenJackReed and everyone who made the passage of the Museum and Library Services Act possible. We are grateful for Congress’ renewed commitment to supporting our nation’s libraries!

From the American Library Association Washington Office:

“ALA advocates, we applaud your steadfast work to move MLSA forward and to send a strong message to Congress that libraries and the vital services they provide have longstanding value in every community across the country. Thank you for everything you do!”

Thank you!
