Share your support for libraries!

Let your local legislators know that libraries are important to you to help celebrate National Library Week! Send an e-mail to your governor and representatives today, and pass this message on to your friends and colleagues.

Libraries continue to be busier than ever helping families survive during these tough economic times, yet public libraries, school libraries, and academic libraries are facing closures and elimination of librarians and library workers—the people who help those with a job application, teach 21st-century skills, and nurture the love of reading in kids that will serve them the rest of their lives.

State governments provide much needed funding for libraries to provide public access to the Internet to everyone, critical databases for individuals and small businesses, and homework help.
