Tell Roskam to fight to restore funding for American Libraries!

President Trumps new Federal budget calls for the complete elimination of funding support for public libraries.  According to the American Library Association, “The President has proposed eliminating virtually all federal library funding and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the agency that distributes most of the funds to every state in the nation. Now budget-cutters in Congress are considering whether to follow his lead.”  Peter Roskam has consistently voted against socially beneficial programs like these so we need your help to convince him to restore funding for these libraries!

NOW is the time to declare your support of our library system.  Contact Congressman Peter Roskam and declare your support for libraries and urge him to support full funding for these worthwhile programs including the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) programs.
