Action needed or we may lose library services.
The American Library Association issued a press release concerning the proposed federal budget as it impacts libraries at http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2017/03/president-s-budget-proposal-eliminate-federal-library-funding
Why should we care about the consequences of this this possible loss of federal funding?
- We use interlibrary delivery service funded with this money;
- We use website hosting services funded with this money;
- We use databases for patrons funded with this money;
- We use services for the blind and disabled funded with this money;
- A detailed list of additional services funded with this money is at: https://www.imls.gov/grants/grants-states . Information specific to New Jersey is within this page.
If you agree that these are services we need to provide to our community, please take action by taking only a minute to link here http://cqrcengage.com/alanj/home
