Take Action for Libraries!

Take Action for Libraries!

Today, the American Library Association has gathered hundreds of librarians and library advocates from across the country to meet with their Representatives and Senators in Washington D.C. about the importance of supporting libraries on the national level.

You can join them by calling your representatives today and tomorrow to express your support for the Long Beach Public Library and telling them what a difference libraries have made in your life.

What to Tell Your Representatives

We join the American Library Association in asking our Representatives and Senators to support the Museum and Library Services Act of 2017 (S. 2271). This bill reauthorizes the Institute of Museum and Library Services and allows it to continue funding libraries nationwide through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). The LSTA needs support to be fully funded in the next fiscal year and reach the 120,000 libraries which benefit from its contributions. This is a bipartisan piece of legislation that needs more support to move forward.
Just last year, the Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor for libraries, to the Long Beach Public Library.

Make the Call

After you call, invite your friends to join and celebrate National Library Legislative Day with #NLLD2018 on social media.
