Support the “Build America’s Libraries Act”

The “Build America’s Libraries Act” would provide $5 billion to libraries and archives for infrastructure improvements. Now that the bill has been introduced in both the Senate (S. 127) and the House (H.R. 1581), it’s time to build support for the legislation in Congress. You can help!  Visit the American Library Association’s #BuildLibraries site for more information about the effort, including a list of Senators and Representatives who have signed on as co-sponsors of the bill. And take action now by urging your legislators to support the bill. For those who work in publicly funded facilities, the ALA asks you to share your stories (failures or successes) and data that it can use to illustrate the critical importance of this funding.
