Save Library Funding
Once again, California libraries are facing tremendous budget cuts. The current state budget removes all funding for libraries, which is bad enough, but cutting state funding also jeopardizes federal funds for libraries – a double whammy. Please take the time to send a letter to the Budget Subcommittees expressing your support for libraries and the need to restore state funding for libraries in this year’s budget.
To make it really easy for you, I’ve put together a sample letter that you are free to use. This PDF document includes letters addressed to each of the Senate and Assembly Budget Subcommittee members, ready to print, sign and send. If you prefer, you can feel free to adapt this as you see fit, or write your own letter. Please send via fax or snail mail (this still carries more weight with our legislators than email) to the addresses and fax numbers on the letters. The Senate Budget Subcommittee meets Thursday, April 19th, so make sure to get your letters in by then!
