Vote to Save Libraries

Feb 16, 2011 10:31:52 AM / by Mango Languages

This week, the House of Representatives will consider an amendment to the FY2011 Continuing Resolution that is critical to libraries – one that would eliminate all Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)
funding including Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding.

Amendment #35, submitted by U.S. Rep. Scott Garret (R-NJ), seeks to zero out the Institute of Museum and Library Services, eliminating all federal
funding specifically for libraries.

Together, we can make a difference. Contact your representative and oppose Amendment #35. Go to and enter your zip code to find out who your representative is and how to contact them. Call or email him or her to oppose Amendment #35 to the Continuing Resolution!

Here is an email template to send to your representative:

Subject: Oppose Amendment #35 to the Continuing Resolution

Message: Libraries are essential to every community, and federal funding is
critical for ensuring library resources and services remain available.

This is an important vote and I appreciate your Opposing Amendment 35 to the Continuing Resolution submitted by U.S. Rep. Scott Garret (R-NJ)

Don't forget to Vote!
