Take Action for Libraries Day


"A library is a place that is a repository of information 

and gives every citizen equal access to it." Neil Gaiman

It's National Library Week and the American Library Association is launching Take Action for Libraries Day.

"Take Action for Libraries Day is a national library advocacy effort observed for the first time on the Thursday of National Library Week, April 13. 
In response to President’s Trump proposed budget cuts, this year’s Take Action for Libraries Day will highlight the library community’s efforts to safeguard funding for the Institute for Museum and Library Services , which serves as a critical funding resource for every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. territories to support libraries and museums."
