      Friends and Advocates,

      This week the California Budget Conference Committee will decide whether to eliminate 100% of funding for public libraries.

      If the Budget Conference Committee does not decide to maintain some level of funding, the California Library Services Act, the State literacy program and the Public Library Foundation will be eliminated as per the Governor’s Budget proposal.

      It is absolutely essential that library advocates call, fax or email every member of the Budget Conference Committee and ask them to support the Assembly Version of the Budget that includes library funding. (The Senate version, echoing the Governor's, eliminates library funding.)

      Remind your legislators how important this funding is! Without state funding, our libraries will also lose Federal funding.

      Call your own Assembly member or Senator and ask him/her to speak favorably about the library issue in their respective caucuses. Speak out about the importance of these library programs to you and your neighbors.

      Please fax, call or email today!
