Library funding

Federal funding for public libraries is inexplicably under threat, notably the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) programs. You can read more about them at the American Library Association website. My Senators, Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, laudably support full funding for both programs in FY17 and FY18 — except for Senator Markey and the FY18 IAL budget.

Today, I sent a message (yes, by Twitter again) to Senator Markey urging support for IAL funding in FY18.
