In addition to personally reaching out to our representatives in the House and Senate, we must encourage library users of all ages in our communities to speak up for libraries. Every day across the country, libraries are consistently meeting the needs of their communities by providing a broad range of services for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The library plays a critical role as Americans face tough economic times, as patrons are visiting their library for more than borrowing free books, movies, CDs and attending free reading programs. Libraries offer their communities access to computers and the Internet, financial literacy skills, assistance with job searches, and resources to help small businesses at no cost to them.
Contact your representatives and let them know that libraries are important to you!
